Macrosculpture of mesoscutal midlobe: punctate rugose throughout. Macrosculpture of lateral lobe of mesoscutum: punctate rugose. Sculpture of notaulus: foveate. Notaular foveae: interconnected. Median mesoscutal carina: present along full length of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum in lateral view: convex. Sculpture of mesoscutellum: smooth medially, densely punctate laterally; longitudinally carinate medially, densely punctate laterally. Shape of metascutellum: trapezoidal with broad posterior margin.

Sculpture of medial S2: densely longitudinally striate with fine punctures in interstices.

Diagnosis.

This species can be distinguished from other Chromoteleia  by the following combination of characters: female A7 without basiconic sensillum, occipital carina complete, median mesoscutal carina present along full length of mesoscutum, ventral metapleural area smooth posteriorly, postmarginal vein distinctly longer than stigma vein, male T7 with posterior margin deeply emarginated between rounded projections.
