Hymenoptera Hymenoptera

Moved from Chalcid Wasps.

Moved from ID Request.

Shares some characteristics with the Haltichellinae group.

See reference here.

Definitely the subfamily Haltichellinae
as suggested (based on the truncated tip of the hind tibia), and belongs in the tribe Hybothoracini (based on the wing venation). Most likely either the genus Psilochalcis or Schwarzella.
