Tiny Shiny Green Wasp w/ Ovipositor - female

Tiny Shiny Green Wasp w/ Ovipositor - Female
Eugene, Lane County, Oregon, USA
October 3, 2018
Size: 4mm head to abdomen
Found in an extremely dry area of brush and dried grass. There were tons of leafhoppers and grasshoppers in every direction. I swept my sweep net at a conspicuous cluster of dried grass and found this wasp inside. It was small enough to crawl through the holes in my net, so I was lucky to get it.

The head and thorax were reflective green, but the abdomen was more of a reflective brown/purple/orange.
