Head black, except mandible testaceous; antenna brown; mesosoma black; metasoma brown; legs brown, partly testaceous. Antenna filiform; antennomeres in following proportions: 11:7:9:8:7:7:6:6:5:7. Head ( Fig. 113CView FIGURE 113) dull, reticulate rugose; frontal line complete; occipital carina complete; POL = 4; OL = 2; OOL = 9; OPL = 8; TL = 5; greatest breadth of posterior ocellus longer than OL (3.5:2). Mesoscutum ( Fig. 113AView FIGURE 113), mesoscutellum and metanotum reticulate rugose. Notauli complete, posteriorly separated; minimum distance between notauli longer than greatest breadth of lateral ocelli (9:3.5). In specimens from Madagascar, 16°13.41’S 46°08.37’E and 16°19.16’S 46°48.80’E, notauli hardly visible.
