Thaumatodryinus merinus Olmi 2004d: 99  ; Azevedo et al. 2010: 893.

Description. ♂ ( Fig. 157DView FIGURE 157). Fully winged; body length 2.2–3.0 mm. Head testaceous, except ocellar triangle black or brown; antenna testaceous-darkened, except antennomere 1 testaceous-light; mesosoma testaceous, except brown spot on anterior surface of mesoscutum; mesoscutellum and metanotum black or brown; large brown spot on metapectal-propodeal disc and propodeal declivity; anterior surface of mesopleuron and meso-metapleuron suture brown; metasoma brown; legs testaceous. Some specimens from Madagascar, 16°24.24’S 45°18.36’E, are more darkened, with part of occiput and entire mesopleuron and metapleuron brown. Occasionally mesosoma testaceous, except mesoscutum, mesoscutellum, part of mesopleuron and median region of propodeal declivity brown. In specimen from Madagascar, 16°41.49’S 44°31.41’E, head black, except mandible, clypeus, part of malar space and stripe between antennal toruli ferruginous-dark; antenna brown, except scape and pedicel testaceous; prothorax ferruginous-dark; mesoscutum totally black; rest of mesosoma black; metasoma brown; legs testaceous. In specimen from Madagascar, 23°13.351’S 43°52.853’E, head black, except mandible, clypeus, malar space and stripe along orbits testaceous, area between antennal toruli ferruginous-dark; antenna brown, except antennomere 1 testaceous; mesosoma black, except prothorax (dorsally brown), posterior third of mesoscutum and basal third of metapleuron testaceous; metasoma brown; legs testaceous. In specimen from Madagascar, 21°13.11’S, 45°19.26’E, head and mesosoma completely testaceous-reddish, except ocellar triangle and axilla brown. Antenna filiform; antennomeres in following proportions: 7:5:9:7:11:12:11:10:8:11. Head dull, convex, granulate and slightly rugose; frontal line absent; occipital carina complete; POL = 5.5; OL = 2; OOL = 6; OPL = 1; TL = 4; greatest breadth of lateral ocelli longer than OL (4:2). In dark specimens head with some irregular keels on frons. Mesoscutum dull, as sculpured as head (in dark specimens mesoscutum with some irregular keels). Notauli complete, posteriorly separated; minimum distance between notauli as long as greatest breadth of lateral ocelli (4:4), shorter than breadth of each lateral region of mesoscutum measured at posterior margin of mesoscutum ( Fig. 159BView FIGURE 159); in two specimens from Madagascar, 21°15.05’S 47°24.43’E, minimum distance between notauli longer than greatest breadth of lateral ocelli (4:3). Mesoscutellum shiny, punctate, unsculptured among punctures. Metanotum shiny, unsculptured. Metapectal-propodeal disc reticulate rugose, without strong transverse posterior keel; propodeal declivity reticulate rugose, without longitudinal keels. Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein longer than proximal part (19:14); 2R1 cell open. Inner side of paramere without mosaic sculpture ( Fig. 159CView FIGURE 159); tibial spurs 1/1/2.
