Description. ♀. Fully winged; body length 1.9–2.5 mm. Head black, except mandible testaceous; antenna brown, except scape and pedicel testaceous (in specimens from Uganda, Mali and Zimbabwe), or completely yellow (in specimens from South Africa and Democratic Republic of the Congo); mesosoma and metasoma black; legs brown, except tarsi testaceous (in specimens from Uganda), or more or less yellow (in specimens from Mali, Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Africa). Occasionally (in specimens from South Africa, 29°37.41’S 31°06.454’E) antenna brown, except antennomeres 1–4 or 1–5 testaceous. In specimens from Mali, Katibougou, antenna brown, except scape and pedicel testaceous. Antenna clavate; antennomeres in following proportions: 6:3.5:3.5:3:2.5:3:3.5:3.5:3.5:4.5. Head dull, granulate, with frons completely or partly granulate and reticulate rugose (occasionally very weakly rugose); frontal line present; frons without lateral keels near orbits and directed towards antennal toruli; occipital carina complete; POL = 5; OL = 3; OOL = 4; OPL = 3; TL = 4. Pronotum dull, granulate, with few transverse keels; posterior surface shorter than mesoscutum (5:9); pronotal tubercle reaching tegula. Mesoscutum dull, granulate. Notauli incomplete, reaching about 0.25 × length of mesoscutum; in series of specimens from Tanzania, Mkomazi Game Reserve, few specimens with notauli reaching about 0.25 × length of mesoscutum and other specimens with shorter notauli, slightly visible near anterior margin of mesoscutum; two specimens from Mali, Katibougou, and one specimen from Uganda, Kawanda, with notauli very shortly present near anterior margin of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, unsculptured. Metapectal-propodeal disc with strong transverse posterior keel, reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity reticulate rugose, without longitudinal keels, with areolae less wide than those of metapectal-propodeal disc. Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands, occasionally with very slight dark spot situated across 2R1 cell; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein much shorter than proximal part (2:6). Protarsomeres in following proportions: 5:2:2:3:9. Enlarged claw ( Fig. 78EView FIGURE 78) with proximal prominence bearing one long bristle. Protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 78EView FIGURE 78) with one row of 10–15 lamellae; apex with 4 lamellae. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.

♂. Fully winged; body length 1.7–1.9 mm. Head black, except mandible testaceous; antenna completely tes- taceous; occasionally antennomeres 3–10 slightly darkened; mesosoma and metasoma black; legs completely testaceous; occasionally coxae, femora and tibiae brown. In specimen from South Africa, Ashburton, 9–24.XI.2005, head brown, except irregular testaceous spots on frons, vertex and occiput. Antenna filiform; antennomeres in following proportions: 9:5:5:6:5:6:6:5:5:8. Head dull, completely granulate; frontal line complete; frons without lateral keels near orbits and directed towards antennal toruli; occipital carina complete; POL = 6; OL = 4; OOL = 4; OPL = 2.5; TL = 2.5; in some specimens from Congo, POL = 5; OL = 4; OOL = 5; OPL = 3; TL = 5. Mesoscutum dull, granulate, with some slight areolae near anterior margin. Notauli incomplete, reaching about 0.5 × length of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, unsculptured. Metapectal-propodeal disc with or without strong transverse posterior keel, reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity without longitudinal keels, completely reticulate rugose, with areolae less wide than those of metapectal-propodeal disc. Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein much shorter than proximal part (3:7). Paramere ( Fig. 77CView FIGURE 77) without distal inner pointed process and proximal membranous process; in specimen from South Africa, Guernsey Farm, inner side of paramere with some transverse folds. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.
