Moved
Moved from Megaspilidae. Thanks again proctos, it would be very helpful to us editors if you could tell us a little about yourself, as your IDs seem to be correct, and we'd like to know from where you get your knowledge

Moved
Moved from Ceraphronidae.

Moved
Moved from parasitic Apocrita.

Conostigmus sp. (Megaspilidae
Conostigmus sp. (Megaspilidae, Ceraphronoidea)

I "nailed" it almost right...
Because presence of a distinct pterostigma indicates a Megaspilidae, not a true Ceraphrontidae. Nonetheless, both families are closely related and form together the superfamily Ceraphrontoidea.

 
Thanks Richard
Looks like I still need a home for this series ... couldn't find either family by search bar or taxon listing, and there's no 'superfamily Ceraphrontoidea' in the Guide.
