Chrysidoidea (Cuckoo wasps/gold wasps)

Wikipedia Abstract

The superfamily Chrysidoidea is a very large cosmopolitan group (some 6,000 described species, and many more undescribed), including many parasitoid or cleptoparasitic wasps. There are three large, common families (Bethylidae, Chrysididae, and Dryinidae) and four small, rare families (Embolemidae, Plumariidae, Sclerogibbidae, and Scolebythidae). Most species are small (7 mm or less), almost never exceeding 15 mm.
