Description.

Body length of female: 4.28-6.90 mm (n = 20). Body length of male: 4.10-6.53 mm (n = 20). Color of A1: yellow to orange. A6 in female: distinctly wider than long. A5 in female: distinctly longer than wide; as long as wide. A6 in male: as long as wide. Number of basiconic sensilla on A7: 1. Number of basiconic sensilla on A12: 1. Sculpture of dorsal A1: punctate; smooth. Color of head: black. Sculpture of frons directly above interantennal process: areolate. Central keel: complete, extending from interantennal process to median ocellus. Ventral margin of clypeus: pointed. Granulate microsculpture of dorsal frons: absent. Occipital carina: interrupted medially. Granulate microsculpture of vertex: absent. Sculpture of occiput: smooth medially, striate laterally. Sculpture of gena: narrowly smooth ventrally, punctate rugose dorsally.

Color of mesosoma: variably orange to black. Sculpture of epicoxal lobe posterior of propleural epicoxal sulcus: sparsely punctate. Sculpture of lateral pronotal area above pronotal cervical sulcus: smooth dorsally, rugose ventrally. Sculpture of netrion: transversely striate. Microsculpture of mesoscutum: granulate. Macrosculpture of mesoscutal midlobe: sparsely punctate. Macrosculpture of lateral lobe of mesoscutum: sparsely punctate. Sculpture of notaulus: foveate. Notaular foveae: interconnected. Median mesoscutal carina: present anteriorly, not extending to posterior margin of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum in lateral view: convex. Sculpture of mesoscutellum: smooth medially, densely punctate laterally. Shape of metascutellum: trapezoidal with broad posterior margin. Median metascutellar carina: present. Sculpture of metascutellum: rugose. Sculpture of lateral propodeal area: smooth. 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: present. Sculpture of ventral metapleural area: rugose throughout. Color of legs: orange to pale brown. Length of hind basitarsus: distinctly longer than remaining segments combined. Sculpture of hind coxa: densely punctate.

Length of postmarginal vein: distinctly shorter 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: sparse. Transverse sulcus on T2: absent. Sculpture of T2: densely longitudinally striate, punctate rugulose in interstices. Sculpture of T6 in female: densely longitudinally striate, with fine punctures in interstices. Length of T6 in female: at least 1.5 × longer than wide. Shape of T6 in female in lateral view: sinuate. Apical spine on female T6: absent. Sculpture of T6 in male: densely longitudinally striate with fine punctures in interstices. Sculpture of T7 in male: smooth anteriorly, rugulose posteriorly. Posterior margin of T7 in male: emarginate medially between rounded projections. 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 with one basiconic sensillum, dorsal metapleural area with setae, basitarsus distinctly longer than remaining segments combined, postmarginal vein distinctly shorter than stigmal vein, male T7 with posterior margin deeply emarginate medially between rounded projections.
