Parasitic wasp female

Xanthopimpla sp.


About 12mm long body. Obviously female. This one couldn't fly and after examining the photos on the big screen I noticed a tiny break in the left costa.


Outer urban back yard.


This species has a proportionately longer ovipositor then the most common one around here - X.rhopaloceros
Maybe X.punctata
