Braconid from hackberry dead twig rearing

Braconid from hackberry dead twig rearing
Decorah, Winneshiek County, Iowa, USA
June 11, 2016
Emerged from a batch rearing of hackberry dead twigs. Three species of wood-boring beetles have also emerged from this rearing, so I'd guess this wasp is a parasitoid of one of them. The beetles include:
(1) an Agrilus sp.
(2) This cerambycid

and
(3) This beetle
