A very small wasp with a serious case of bloat. About 8mm long. Exploring a eucalyptus leaf.
In a local nature reserve with open dry eucalyptus woodland.
JohnLaSalle proposes Braconidae and Stephen Thorpe has suggested Bracon sp. Thanks you both.

Brilliant! Makes sense seeing it on the same day as those blistering sawflies. Thanks again.
Looks like genus Bracon. Possibly a parasitoid of Phylacteophaga.
Wow thanks John. Sorry about the poor photo.
Looks like a braconid.
