Description

I found this tiny, ant-sized wasp after she decided she didn't like my neck. So I did the logical thing and put her under a microscope. I suspect the genus to be Laelius, and the folks at BugGuide were able to verify up to Family. The lack of a noded petiole and the short scapes are one trait to distinguish this wasp from the ants.
