Parasitic wasp

Found a 'mesh' covered pupa on the underside of a leaf and put it into clean pot to see what emerged. As the plants had shown lots of 'cuckoo spit', I was expecting a spittle bug but found a parasitic wasp in the pot. I guess this happens a lot!

The pictures are a week apart, and the empty pupa can be seen behind the wasp in the second picture.
