tiny hymenoptera
This is a female of Zaischnopsis Ashmead (Eupelmidae). The images are not quite good enough to be 100% certain but I believe it is a female of Z. bouceki Gibson.

Eupelmidae is correct…
The elongate metallic-colored body, flattened mesonotum, and widely separated front and hind coxae ID this subfamily. They are among the largest chalcids. This is a female.
