Description. ♀ ( Figs 145A, BView FIGURE 145). Fully winged; body length 5.3–6.9 mm. Head black, except mandible and clypeus ferruginous; propleuron black; pronotum black, except margins and posterior collar reddish; rest of mesosoma black; metasoma black-brown, some× with apex reddish; legs testaceous, except coxae and clubs of femora black or brown. Antenna clavate; antennomeres in following proportions: 16:6:27:19:14:11:9:9:8:10. Head shiny, completely reticulate rugose; occipital carina complete; OL shorter than POL; OPL shorter than OL. In specimen from Kenya, 00°61.517’S 34°09.200’’E, POL = 6; OL = 5; OOL = 11; OPL = 2; temple absent; greatest breadth of lateral ocelli longer than OPL (3:2). Pronotum dull, granulate, not humped, crossed by slight anterior and posterior transverse impressions; posterior collar short, slightly visible; pronotal tubercle not reaching tegula. Mesoscutum dull, granulate and reticulate rugose. Notauli absent. Mesoscutum with two longitudinal keels on place of notauli and reaching approximately 0.5 × length of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum dull, granulate and partly reticulate rugose. Metanotum completely reticulate rugose. Metapectal-propodeal disc reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity reticulate rugose, with two long longitudinal keels. Forewing with two dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein longer than proximal part (20:13). In holotype, protarsomere 1 about as long as 4; protarsomere 3 produced into hook. In specimen from Kenya, 00°61.517’S 34°09.200’E, Protarsomeres in following proportions: 16:4:8:16:31. Protrochanter about twice as long as broad. Enlarged claw ( Fig. 144DView FIGURE 144) without subdistal teeth and with three distal lamellae. Protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 144DView FIGURE 144) with two rows of approximately 42 lamellae extending continuously to apex (one row is composed of very long lamellae). Tibial spurs 1/1/2.

♂. Fully winged; body length 4.4 mm. Head black, except mandible and clypeus testaceous; antenna testaceous; mesosoma black; metasoma brown; legs testaceous, except coxae and clubs of femora black.

Head shiny, reticulate rugose; occipital carina incomplete; lateral ocelli not touching occipital carina; OL shorter than POL; OPL shorter than OL; temple very short. Mesoscutum shiny, reticulate rugose. Notauli absent. Mesoscutellum dull, granulate, with some areolae. Metanotum reticulate rugose. Metapectal-propodeal disc reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity reticulate rugose, without longitudinal keels. Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein longer than proximal part (17:9). Genitalia in Fig. 147AView FIGURE 147. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.
