I hate it when I see things that might not be there.

 
But
But you were right! I thought it might be this genus, but I had overlooked the male. When I looked for the character in a key to genera, I found it.

Flagellum
I am seeing notches in a couple of flagellar segments at about the midpoint of the flagellum, and I feel like I ought to remember where I have seen those (getting old), although they make me certain that this is a male. The apparent strength of the notaulus in the other view leaves me wondering whether it might be a braconid, as I can't see the venation clearly enough to make a family placement with certainty.
