John Heraty has spent a good deal of his career studying the family Eucharitidae - and he will know them better than anyone else. He would certainly be the best person to offer you an identification to genus.

Only the males have those wonderful branched antennae, and not all species of males have them.

And John is right! I mistakenly have the mental image of Eucharitidae only having the crazy antler-like antennae.

Nice wasp
This is in the superfamily Chalcidoidea, family Eucharitidae.

These are parasitoids of ants.

Obrigada, João. Eu imaginei que fosse Evaniidae. Essa é muito menor que a preta, fiquei em duvida se devo por o mesmo nome comum.
