Braconidae (Family) Callibracon sp.
Gall forming scale insects produce protective elongated galls but the wasp has a suitably elongated ovipositor.
Galls are sometimes prolific on mature gum trees. The wasps are regular visitors.
The last pic taken 24 May 2012 of a suspected developing larva of the wasp.
