Bethylid on Dove Weed?

Bethylid on Dove Weed?
Bernard Field Station, Claremont, Los Angeles County, California, USA
October 26, 2014
Several of these tiny wasps were present on Dove Weed (aka Turkey Mullein, Croton setigerus) at the Claremont Colleges' Bernard Field Station. The area where they were observed was formerly a lemon orchard and now consists largely of exotic grasses. A similar-looking one from last year was identified as Goniozus, and I'm wondering if this might be the same.

Any information will be greatly appreciated!

I've included several images that show various parts more sharply. Please feel free to frass any that aren't useful.
