1 Basal half of first metasomal tergite with laterope visible in dorsal view ( Figs 6View FIGURES 3–13, 43View FIGURES 39–50); hypopygium of ♀ largely sclerotized, keeled ventrally, subtruncate or rounded posteriorly and with long setae ( Figs 8View FIGURES 3–13, 37View FIGURES 36–38); length of malar space of ♀ 1.2–1.4 × basal width of mandible ( Figs 11View FIGURES 3–13, 48View FIGURES 39–50), of ♂ 1.3–1.5 ×; ovipositor (except basally) slender ( Figs 2View FIGURES 1–2, 36, 38View FIGURES 36–38); propleuron, pronotum ventrally and mesopleuron ventrally, pale yellowish; tegulum pale yellowish, paler than brownish humeral plate; middle coxa pale yellow or ivory ( Figs 1View FIGURES 1–2, 36View FIGURES 36–38); occipital carina reaching dorsally near upper level of eye and sinuate laterally ( Figs 11View FIGURES 3–13, 48View FIGURES 39–50). ................................................................................................... 2

- Basal half of first metasomal tergite straight laterally and nearly parallel-sided in dorsal view, without laterope visible ( Fig. 24View FIGURES 21–30); hypopygium of ♀ largely membranous ventrally, unsclerotized, protruding latero-posteriorly and comparatively short bristly setae ( Fig. 25View FIGURES 21–30); length of malar space of ♀ about equal to basal width of mandible ( Fig. 28View FIGURES 21–30; of ♂ approx. 1.2 ×); only apical third of exserted ovipositor slender in lateral view ( Figs 17, 20View FIGURES 17–20); propleuron, pronotum ventrally and mesopleuron ventrally, tegulum (darker than humeral plate), and middle coxa dark brown ( Figs 17View FIGURES 17–20, 31View FIGURES 31–35); occipital carina dorsally distinctly below upper level of eye and straight laterally ( Fig. 28View FIGURES 21–30)....................................................... M. niger Fischer, 1957 

2 Area near occipital carina and occiput dorsally pale yellow ( Fig. 10View FIGURES 3–13); mesopleuron of ♀ antero-dorsally largely finely coria- ceous and without rugae medially ( Fig. 4View FIGURES 3–13; of ♂ indistinctly coriaceous antero-dorsally and largely smooth medially); width of face of ♀ 0.9 × combined height of face and clypeus ( Fig. 9View FIGURES 3–13; of ♂ approx. 1.1 ×; measured from ventral rim of antennal socket to ventral border of clypeus: Fig. 15View FIGURES 14–16); length of malar space of ♀ 1.2 × basal width of mandible ( Fig. 11View FIGURES 3–13; of ♂ 1.4–1.5 ×); head of ♀ strongly transverse in dorsal view ( Fig. 10View FIGURES 3–13); mesopleuron and inner side of hind trochantellus yellowish brown ( Figs 4, 6View FIGURES 3–13); scapus of ♂ hardly compressed ( Fig. 15View FIGURES 14–16); [malar space of ♀ in anterior view nearly straight ( Fig. 9View FIGURES 3–13)]; (lowland).........................................................................................
