Description.

Body length of female: 5.28-5.90 mm (n = 20). Body length of male: 5.20-5.83 mm (n = 20). Color of A1: yellow to orange. A6 in female: as wide as long. A5 in female: distinctly longer than wide. A6 in male: approximately 2.0 × longer than wide. Number of basiconic sensilla on A7: 0. Number of basiconic sensilla on A12: 2. Sculpture of dorsal A1: striate. Color of head: black. Sculpture of frons directly above interantennal process: punctate rugose. Central keel: complete, extending from interantennal process to median ocellus. Ventral margin of clypeus: pointed. Granulate microsculpture of dorsal frons: present. Occipital carina: interrupted medially. Granulate microsculpture of vertex: present. Sculpture of occiput: smooth medially, striate laterally. Sculpture of gena: coarsely punctate rugose.

Color of mesosoma: orange. Sculpture of epicoxal lobe posterior of propleural epicoxal sulcus: smooth. Sculpture of lateral pronotal area above pronotal cervical sulcus: smooth throughout. Sculpture of netrion: transversely striate. Microsculpture of mesoscutum: granulate. 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: absent. Mesoscutellum in lateral view: convex. Sculpture of mesoscutellum: densely punctate rugose. Shape of metascutellum: trapezoidal with broad posterior margin. Median metascutellar carina: present. Sculpture of metascutellum: rugose. Sculpture of lateral propodeal area: rugose. Mesopleural carina: present. Sculpture of mesepisternum below femoral depression: punctate rugose. Sculpture of dorsal metapleural area: rugose. Setation of dorsal metapleural area: present. Setation of area directly dorsal to the metapleural triangle: absent. Sculpture of ventral metapleural area: rugose anteriorly, obliquely striate posteriorly. Color of legs: orange yellow throughout. Length of hind basitarsus: about as long as remaining segments combined. Sculpture of hind coxa: largely smooth, with sparse fine punctures.

Length of postmarginal vein: distinctly longer than stigmal vein.

Color of metasoma in female: black. Color of metasoma in male: black. Horn on T1 in female: present. Striae of posterior margin of T1 in female: dense. Striae of T1 in male: dense. Transverse sulcus on T2: present. Sculpture of T2: densely longitudinally striate, punctate rugulose in interstices. Sculpture of T6 in female: longitudinally punctate rugose. Length of T6 in female: approximately as long as wide; wider than long. Shape of T6 in female in lateral view: flat. Apical spine on female T6: absent. Sculpture of T6 in male: densely punctate. Sculpture of T7 in male: granulate. Posterior margin of T7 in male: straight. 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, mesoscutum without median mesoscutal carina, dorsal metapleural area with setae, ventral metapleural area obliquely striate, male T7 with posterior margin straight.
