Chalcid parasitoid from cynipid gall - female

Chalcid parasitoid from cynipid gall - Female
Mt. Holyoke Range, South Hadley, Hampshire County, Massachusetts, USA
Size: 1.8 mm
Found dead on 5/6/2011 in a bag containing these two galls on Quercus alba leaves, collected on 4/18/2011.

Moved
Moved from "Parasitica" (parasitic Apocrita).
Thanks--I see now that it seems to be the same kind as this one:

Pteromalid…
Coloration, a large, sculptured thorax, wing venation, and longer antennae point to this family. The abdomen appears to have shriveled (or was deformed at hatchout).
