Description. ♀. Fully winged; body length 2.5–3.0 mm. Head black, except mandible testaceous (with teeth brown); antenna brown, except antennomeres 1–6 or 1–4 testaceous (occasionally antenna completely brown or testaceous, except antennomere 10 darkened); mesosoma and metasoma black; tegula testaceous; legs brown, except tarsi testaceous, or testaceous, except metacoxa brown. Antenna clavate; antennomeres in following proportions: 13:5:4:4:4:4:5:5:5:7. Head shiny, granulate and reticulate rugose; frontal line present; frons with or without lateral keels near orbits and directed towards antennal toruli; occipital carina complete; POL = 7; OL = 4; OOL = 5; OPL = 6; TL = 4. Pronotum shiny, granulate; posterior surface very long, more than 0.5 × as long as mesoscutum (10:13); pronotal tubercle reaching tegula. Mesoscutum shiny, granulate. Notauli absent; occasionally notauli present and incomplete, reaching about 0.2–0.3 × length of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, slightly granulate. Metapectal-propodeal disc with strong transverse posterior keel, reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity granulate and with numerous irregular keels or sculptured by small areolae, without longitudinal keels. Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein much shorter than proximal part (3:9). Protarsomeres in following proportions: 7:2:3:3:12. Protarsomere 4 produced into hook, about 0.5 × as long as basal part of 5. Enlarged claw ( Fig. 57DView FIGURE 57) with proximal prominence bearing one long bristle. Protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 57DView FIGURE 57) with two rows of 10–14 lamellae, among which one very long distal lamella. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.

♂ (not reared; tentatively associated to the above ♀). Fully winged; body length 1.0– 1.9 mm. Head black, except mandible testaceous; antenna testaceous, except antennomeres 3–10 darkened (in holotype of A. brooksi  , antenna totally testaceous; in other specimens, antenna brown, except scape and pedicel testaceous); mesosoma and metasoma black; occasionally metasoma brown; legs testaceous, except coxae, clubs of femora and tibiae partly brown (in holotype of A. brooksi  , pro- and mesoleg completely testaceous). Antenna filiform; antennomeres in following proportions: 6:3.5:3:3:3:3:3:3:3:4.5. Head dull, reticulate rugose; frontal line complete; occipital carina complete; POL = 6; OL = 3; OOL = 3; OPL = 2; TL = 3. Mesoscutum shiny, slightly or strongly granulate. Notauli incomplete, reaching about 0.3–0.4 × length of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, unsculptured.

Metapectal-propodeal disc with strong transverse posterior keel, reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity without longitudinal keels, completely reticulate rugose (in specimen from Madagascar, 21°13.67’S 47°22.19’E, propodeal declivity with tracks of two complete longitudinal keels). Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein much shorter than proximal part (1.5:5.5). Paramere ( Figs 56E, FView FIGURE 56) candelabrum shaped, with distal part very slender, with an inner lobe large or small, covered or not with papillae. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.

Hosts. Unknown.

Distribution. Comoros Islands, Madagascar.

Remarks. The record from Diego Suarez Island reported by Olmi (1984) is erroneous, because it was based on a misinterpretation of a paper of Benoit (1954), and instead refers to the town of Diégo-Suarez situated in Madagascar. The new synonymy of Anteon brooksi  is justified because the small difference in the ♂ genitalia of A. madagascolum  (the only difference between these two species) falls within the range of variability of the species, as shown by the study of hundreds of specimens.
