Torymus (female)…
Pls feel free to add images of any males that may have emerged from your galls.

See reference here.

 
Possible Male
I am out of my depth for ID here but I added 2 new posts as examples of other non-Cynipidae wasps that emerged from the 3 galls. One I imagine could be a male and was abundant. The other I believe is different female.
