Chalcid parasitoid of Agonopterix (probably) - Sympiesis

I collected some spotted St. Johnswort (Hypericum punctatum) hoping to rear the Agonopterix larvae that had tied together the two terminal leaves. The larvae died without pupating, and yesterday (May 21) I found this wasp in the bag with them. As far as I know the Agonopterix larvae were the only potential hosts in the bag.
