Urosigalphus sp. -- Paul Marsh det.
Moved from Sigalphinae.

Moved

Braconid: Sigalphinae…
This female braconid does not share the carapace-like thorax and some other features that are present in the related Cheloninae, but seems to share characteristics of sigalphids, so I would move it there for now. This is a very rare and largely unknown group that attack Lep. larvae with only about 30 species worldwide. Great find, Ilona.
