What is this Braconid wasp hatching from a Gulf Fritillary egg instead of the caterpillar I was waiting for. I was happy to catch this, but it is NOT what I was waiting diligently for.............

Moved from ID Request.

Sorry this wasn't what you were expecting, but it's a great image nonetheless. These chalcid wasps are egg parasitoids that attack a wide variety of insects.

See reference here.

Trichogrammitdae it is
Thanks for the lightning fast reply!
