Crypticerya parasitized by fly (?)

Monophlebidae

Notes:

I do not know the name of this insect. White Partridge Pea bug - Crypticerya genistae? I found this picture of a similar kind: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/rpilla0...

It was a small side hole, from which emerged larvae orange.The insect photo 4 is the same that is in my hand in the pictures 1, 2 and 3. I found two weeks ago, hosting a Centrosema. It seemed healthy, and I suppose it would grow.

I found information that this species may be parasitized by a very small type of fly.
