Chalcid Wasp - Arachnophaga - female

Chalcid Wasp - Arachnophaga - Female
Sand Springs, Osage County, Oklahoma, USA
November 22, 2009
Size: 6mm (1/4")

Moved from Eupelmidae.

Moved from ID Request.

Nope, not Braconid
For instance the number of antennal segments is not right.
It's in the superfamily Chalcidoidea (Chalcid wasps), and judging by the big spur on the middle leg tibia and the shortened wings it is an Eupelmid, so family Eupelmidae!

Female of the genus Arachnoph
Female of the genus Arachnophaga Ashmead.

new genus for BG -- thanx, Gary & Sam
