( Figs 528, 529 View Figs 528–531 , 845 View Figs 841–849 )

Diagnosis (female). Antenna with distinct constrictions between clavomeres ( Fig. 845 View Figs 841–849 ); genal carina present; mesoscutellum ( Fig. 528 View Figs 528–531 ) with weak reticulation and elongate meshes, submedian grooves with outer margin absent and slightly converging towards posterior part; dorsellum with median carina; propodeum ( Fig. 528 View Figs 528–531 ) short with strong reticulation, median carina wide, callus with 6–7 setae; petiole very short, just a narrow band; gaster ( Fig. 528 View Figs 528–531 ) elongate, 2.6× as long as wide, medio-basal Gt1 with a sharp edge shaped like an inverted U (as in Fig. 24 View Figs 23–28 ), Gt


heavily setose ( Fig. 529 View Figs 528–531 ).

Scape yellowish-brown with apico-dorsal part brown, pedicel brown, flagellum blackish. Face below level of toruli black with golden-green tinges and clypeus brown, frons golden green with scrobes black with weak metallic tinges; vertex black with metallic blue tinges. Mesoscutum metallic greenish-blue; mesoscutellum and propodeum golden-green.

Petiole black. Gaster with Gt1 golden-green, Gt2 metallic greenish-blue, Gt3-7 metallic purple; gonoplac black.

Antenna with distinct constrictions between clavomeres. Frons with strong reticulation, clypeus smooth, antennal scrobes with weak reticulation; with genal carina. Vertex with strong reticulation outside ocellar triangle, with wrinkled sculpture inside ocellar triangle and with a carina between posterior part of posterior ocelli.

Mesoscutum with strong reticulation, postero-median midlobe with weak reticulation, meshes isodiametric on sidelobes, elongate on midlobe; with eight adnotaular setae in two rows. Mesoscutellum with weak reticulation and elongate meshes; submedian grooves with outer margin absent and converging slightly towards posterior part; with three setae scattered over lateral parts. Dorsellum with strong sculpture, with median carina. Propodeum with a strong and wide median carina that expands strongly posteriorly; with strong reticulation; callus with seven setae. Fore and hind coxae with strong reticulation, mid coxa with weak reticulation. Fore wing with five setae on dorsal surface of submarginal vein; speculum closed; costal setal row broken.
