Diagnosis (female). Antenna with distinct constriction between C1 and C2 ( Fig. 770 View Figs 768–775 ); genal carina present; mesoscutellum ( Fig. 346 View Figs 344–347 ) with median part with weak reticulation and a complete median groove, submedian grooves curved and diverging slightly towards posterior part; dorsellum with median carina; propodeum ( Fig. 346 View Figs 344–347 ) with strong irregular carinae and strong reticulation, callus with five setae; gaster ( Fig. 346 View Figs 344–347 ) 2.0× as long as wide, medio-basal Gt1 with a sharp edge shaped like an inverted U (as in Fig. 24 View Figs 23–28 ), tergites with very strong reticulation.
