Wasp - Aphanogmus

Wasp - Aphanogmus
Dixie Plantation, Charleston County, South Carolina, USA
September 16, 2007
Size: <1mm
Poor image and poor angle. Can anything be made of this in addition to Hymenoptera?

Moved from Ceraphronidae. Thank you, Dr. Deans - this is our first image for that genus.

Aphanogmus sp.
It's the genus Aphanogmus.

Moved from Chalcid Wasps.

The small black appearance, elbowed antennae with a long basal antennal segment, laterally rounded abdomen, and very distinctive wing venation point to this rarely studied family.

See reference here.
