Archaeoteleia araucana Masner  HNS 

Figures 30-35

Archaeoteleia araucana Masner  HNS  1968: 657. Original description. Loiacono & Diaz 1977: 96, description; Sarazin 1986: 972, type information.

The original description (Masner 1968) may be supplemented as follows:

Head (Figs. 32-34): LOL subequal to OOL; eye with few, extremely minute, scattered hairs; median keel on frons lacking; claval formula A6-A12/2-2-2-2-2-2-1.

Mesosoma (Figs. 32, 33): transverse pronotal carina weakly arcuate, anterolateral corners angular, not spikelike; vertical epomial carina very strong, complete, complete row of foveae along anterior margin of side of pronotum; horizontal epomial carina weakly developed, obliterated in anterior half, pronotal shoulders poorly defined, with row of foveolae along mesoscutal margin; lateral portion of pronotum with large central smooth, glabrous field; netrion very well-indicated by foveolae, micropilose; admedian lines very long, clearly indicated; notaulus deeply incised, complete, finely foveolate, nearly parallel to subparallel; parapsidal line faintly indicated; scutellum transverse, length 0.5 times length of mesoscutum, largely smooth, shining, with scattered small setigerous punctures, scutellar spines short, straight, horizontal; mesopleural carina absent; mesopleuron largely smooth, glabrous, mesepisternum with few scattered hairs; acetabular carina fine; posterior margin of mesopleuron with complete chain of deep foveolae reaching ventrally to coxal cavity; metapleuron with arcuate foveolate longitudinal line at meson, below this with long setae, surface rather densely punctate, above predominantly glabrous, with only very few small, scattered setae, shining, with row of foveolae along anterior margin; median portion of propodeum shallowly excavate, median keels weakly pronounced; fore wing broadly exceeding apex of metasoma; hind coxa relatively small, smooth.

Metasoma (figs 30, 31, 35) relatively short, broad, length 2.3 times greatest width; T1 horn in lateral view not exceeding height of dorsellum, dorsal portion of horn totally smooth; length of T2 0.5 times width, longitudinally rugulose, with fine microsculpture in furrows between rugulae; length of T3 0.4 times width, with longitudinal striae medially in basal half or predominantly smooth, with scattered punctures; length of T4 0.4 times width, with only short basal costae or costae extending over its basal half; length of T5 0.3 times width, nearly smooth; length of T6 equal to width.

Diagnosis: Most similar to A. simulans  HNS  and A. gracilis  HNS  , all of which have the mesoscutum with areas devoid of sculpture. Archaeoteleia araucana  HNS  is distinguished by its dark color and apically smooth horn on T1.
