Gasteruptiidae
This is definitly a Gasteruptiidae; however I think Megischus is a Stephanidae genus (I may be wrong). The most common genus of Gasteruptiidae is Gasteruption.

 
Right all around. Thanks, Andy.
Gasteruption looks perfect, but sounds like a stomache disorder. (Last week I shot a syrphid Nausigaster and should look up the root word, no doubt.)

Wow!
Just look at that neck!! Now that's what you call stretched, from nose to tail.

 
I never quite know how to show the really long stuff.
But you've given me a great idea: maybe I should study stretch limo catalogs.
