From Dr. Steven Heydon, Chalc
From Dr. Steven Heydon, Chalcidid specialist at Bohart Museum of Entomology in CA. "I do not think that identification is correct. I have that species in our collection here and Phasgonophora has the antennae in a very narrow sulcus. There is barely room for the two scapes to fit side by side. In your specimen, the front of the head is broadly concave. Also, Phasgonophora is a chalcidid which means its hind femora will be greatly enlarged. I do not see this in your specimen."
