Thank you! I'll put a question mark with the Blondeliini. Can I be sure of the subfamily Exoristinae John?

I am not sure.

Playing the odds, if it comes to light it is likely to be a beetle parasite. Beetle parasites tend to be in Blondeliini or Dexiinae. It looks more like Blondeliini. Such a wing pattern does exist in Blondellini (Lixophaga umbripennis (van der Wulp) from tropical Mexico).
