HOLOTYPE: ♂, UGANDA: WESTERN REGION: Kibale National Park, Kanyawara Makerere University Biological Field Station, 0°33.408'S 30°22.603'E, 1587 m, 30. VII– 5.VIII.2005, UG05-M10, Malaise trap, degraded mid-altitude rainforest, S. van Noort leg. ( SAMC).
Male with head reticulate rugose and granulated; scutum with anterior third reticulate rugose and remaining surface sculptured by many longitudinal subparallel irregular keels; posterior surface of propodeum not provided with longitudinal keels; propodeum with strong transverse keel between dorsal and posterior surface; paramere (Figs 1E, 7F) without distal inner pointed or rounded process, slightly shorter than penis.
Male. Fully winged; length 1.7 mm. Head black, except mandible testaceous; antenna brown, except segment 1 testaceous; mesosoma black; metasoma brown; legs testaceous-dark. Antenna filiform; antennal segments in following proportions: 9:4:4:4:4:4:4:4:4.5:7. Head completely reticulate rugose and granulated; frontal line complete; occipital carina complete; POL = 6; OL = 3; OOL = 4; OPL = 1.5; TL = 2; greatest breadth of posterior ocelli shorter than OL (2:3). Scutum dull, with anterior third reticulate rugose; remaining surface sculptured by many longitudinal subparallel irregular keels. Notauli very short, hardly visible near anterior margin of scutum. Scutellum and metanotum shiny, unsculptured. Propodeum with strong transverse keel between dorsal and posterior surface; dorsal surface reticulate rugose; posterior surface reticulate rugose, sculptured by areolae smaller than those of dorsal surface, without longitudinal keels. Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands or spots; distal part of stigmal vein much shorter than proximal part (2:6). Paramere (Figs 1E, 7F) without distal inner pointed process. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.
Because of the above diagnosis, the new species is similar to Anteon reunionense Olmi, 1987. The main difference regards the sculpture of the scutum: with anterior half reticulate rugose and remaining surface unsculptured, or slightly granulated in Anteon reunionense ; with anterior third reticulate rugose and remaining surface sculptured by many longitudinal subparallel irregular keels in Anteon makererense .
The species is named after Makerere University.
