These 3 tiny wasps of about 1 mm in length emerged from a cluster of what seems to be cocoons in a mass of white silk stuck to the underside of a leaf. All 3 appear to be females, most easily seen in the second picture of the wasp on the left side. Family Braconidae: Microgastrinae.
From an empty lot in a semi-rural area, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico 2,200 meters.
