Parasitic Wasp (July2010) - Basalys - Female
Feliciana Preserve, West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, USA
July 18, 2010
Collected in pitfall trap (7B).

Moved from ID Request. Trying to resolve the 2 IDs I moved based on antennae

Basalis sp. female (Diapriina
Basalis sp. female (Diapriinae, Diapriidae)

You can see many of the characteristics here including the elbowed 11-segmented antennae that are attached very low on the face, reduced wing venation, and a triangular pronotum that reaches the tegulae. Nice.

See reference here.

Now that's some kind of cool antennae. Excellent shot!
