Found at Las Piedras Amazon Center in Madre de Dios region in southeastern Peru on 8.IX.2019. Female Leptogaster?

Yes, Leptogastrinae female. I have identified these with the Nearctic genus Apachekolos (very slender hind tibiae) but T. Dikow believes that genus may prove to be the same as the Old World genus Mesoleptogaster. Very nice!

Cheers, Eric
