Cat Values from Several files if it meets criteria for column values

I have results from some statistical analyses.
The format of the results are as given below:
  1. I want to select lines that have a p-value (last column) less than 0.05 from all the results files (*.results) and cat to a new results file.
  2. It would be very nice if a new column is added that tells me the name of the original results file for each line added.
awk preferred, but can also do python.

e.g: Stat1.result
3 Individual-1813375 11972 1.99E-05
3 Individual-4681817 58156 0.0001712
2 Individual-13020362 23877 0.0006332

4 Individual-759458 46333 0.0283

4 Individual-11099561 23056 0.03826
3 Individual-7551560 13650 0.0576
2 Individual-1036543 65098 0.0579
2 Individual-235385 13339 0.05882

2 Individual-1867856 32616 0.1628
1 Individual-11581364 16013 0.1708

Result File should be like this:
File Bin ID ZIP P
Stat1.result 3 Individual-1813375 11972 1.99E-05
Stat1.result 3 Individual-4681817 58156 0.0001712

Stat1.result 1 Individual-2762682 29182 0.03233
Stat2.result 4 Individual-2985340 29244 0.016565
Stat3.result 3 Individual-10177001 19173 0.0466
Stat6.result 2 Individual-1036543 65098 0.0479

Thank you for your help.

Try this:

awk ' /ZIP/ {next;} $NF < .05 { printf( "%s %s\n", $0, FILENAME ); }' *.results >new.file

Adds the filename as the right most column to each output line. Does discards the header lines.
