HOLOTYPE: ♀, UGANDA: WESTERN REGION: Kibale National Park, Kanyawara Makerere University Biological Field Station, 0°33.996'S 30°21.262'E, 1495 m, 29-31.VII.2005, UG05-Y06, YPT, secondary mid-altitude rainforest, S. van Noort leg. ( SAMC). Paratypes: same locality label as holotype, 1 paratype ♀ ( SAMC), 1 paratype ♀ (MOLC).
Female fully winged; head and mesosoma black, except mandible brown; head completely reticulate rugose; posterior surface of propodeum reticulate rugose, without longitudinal keels, with areolae about as large as those of dorsal surface; forewing with two dark transverse bands, with distal part of stigmal vein less than 0.5 as long as proximal part; segment 4 of protarsus slightly shorter than basal part of segment 5; segment 5 of protarsus (Figs 1B, 6F) with inner side curvilinear, with distinct apical region, with basal part slightly shorter than distal part.
Female. Fully winged; length 2.1-3.3 mm (holotype 2.8 mm). Head black, except mandible brown; antenna brown; mesosoma black; metasoma brown; legs brown, except articulations, trochanters, procoxa and mesocoxa testaceous. Antenna clavate; antennal segments in following proportions: 10:6:7:6:5:6:6:6:6:8. Head slightly convex, dull, completely reticulate rugose; frontal line complete; face without two lateral keels around orbits and directed towards antennal toruli; occipital carina complete; POL = 8; OL = 4; OOL = 6; OPL = 5; TL = 5; greatest breadth of posterior ocelli shorter than OPL (3:5). Pronotum anteriorly crossed by slight transverse impression, dull, with anterior surface transversely striate; posterior surface with anterior half transversely striate and posterior half slightly granulated, not striate; posterior surface shorter than scutum (7:14); pronotal tubercle reaching tegula. Scutum granulated, rugose and irregularly striate. Notauli absent. Scutellum shiny, unsculptured. Metanotum rugose. Propodeum with strong transverse keel between dorsal and posterior surface; dorsal surface dull, reticulate rugose; posterior surface dull, reticulate ru gose, without longitudinal keels, with areolae about as large as those of dorsal surface. Forewing with two dark transverse bands; distal part of stigmal vein much shorter than proximal part (4:9). Protarsal segments in following proportions: 8:3:4:6:16. Segment 4 of protarsus slightly shorter than basal part of segment 5 (6:7). Enlarged claw (Figs 1B, 6F) with proximal prominence bearing one long bristle. Segment 5 of protarsus (Figs 1B, 6F) with basal part slightly shorter than distal part (7:9), with one row of 16 lamellae; distal apex bent and with 5 lamellae. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.
Because of the above diagnosis, the new species is similar to Anteon zimbabwense Olmi, 2005b. The main difference regards the segment 5 of the protarsus: with smaller lamellae and distal part slender in Anteon zimbabwense (Fig. 1F); with lamellae longer and distal part less slender in Anteon kibalense (Fig. 1B, 6F).
The species is named after the type locality, Kibale National Park.
