Chalcidid Wasp

Dear Adrian,
This is a parasitoid Chalcidid Wasp, probably in the genus
Conura, formerly Spilochalcis.  According to BugGuide:  “most attack Lepidoptera pupae; a few parasitize Coleoptera (Chrysomelidae, Curculionidae) and Diptera (Syrphidae); some are secondary parasites of Ichneumonidae and Braconidae.”
