General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
This specimen was found dead & desicated outside.
It fell apart as we were handling it while photographing.
We thought this was a paralastor wasp, but the wing venation doesn't much (ie the 2nd sub-marginal cell isn't petiolate)
