Pretty, it is an ensign wasp, family Evaniidae, they are parasitoids of cockroach oothechas. Probably it is the species Evania appendigaster, a common worldwide species, but it could of course be something similar

That's a great shot. Is there a picture of your setup anywhere - the specimen holder in particular? Or could you post one?
