1. Face fuscous.........................................................................................2

- Face yellow or yellowish-rufous........................................................................ 5

2. Head 1.1 × as wide as high. Face narrow and coriaceous, at the level of antennal fossae 0.35–0.38 × as wide as head ( Fig. 4View FIGURE 4 A), metasomal tergites 2–4 more or less uniformly colored....................................... G. austrinus Dasch 

- Head at least 1.2 × as wide as high. Face not so narrow, at the level of antennal fossae at least 0.4 × as wide as head; metasomal tergites 2 and 3–4 of different contrast color (usually tergite 2 pale or yellowish, whereas tergites 3 and 4 mostly fuscous).. 3

3. Notauli deep; tips of fore wings dusky. Mesoscutum ferruginous, metapleuron black; second tergite yellowish-white, except apical black spot.................................................................... G. laticincta (Cresson) 

- Notauli shallow, indistinct; wings more or less evenly slightly infumate, without dark tips. Mesosoma evenly coloured. Second tergite pale, without apical black spot.................................................................... 4

4. Mesosoma fuscous, fore wing vein cu-a postfurcal; face 0.4 × as wide as head, finely coriaceous; hind femur 3.6 × as long as wide; area superomedia longer than wide. Second tergite pale with narrow fuscous apical edge, 0.6 × as long as wide posteriorly ( Fig. 6View FIGURE 6 D)........................................................................ G. intercalaris  sp. n.

5. Frons and vertex fuscous ( Figs 4View FIGURE 4 C, 5C); mesoscutum entirely fuscous; propodeal carinae reduced ( Fig. 6View FIGURE 6 C); metapleuron slightly matt. Postpetiole and second tergite in basal 2/3 with longitudinal striae ( Fig. 6View FIGURE 6 C). Hind coxae and femora fuscous dor-

sally................................................................................... G. enodis  sp. n. - Frons and vertex yellowish-rufous except fuscous interocellar area; mesoscutum entirely or partly rufous; propodeal carinae well developed. Postpetiole and second tergite without longitudinal striae (except punctata  ).
