Antennae of male ( Fig. 58 View FIGURES 56 – 63 ) with the first flagellomere shorter than second; the second more or less elongated and curved, distal half more or less swollen. Dorsal margin of pronotal plate ( Fig. 59 View FIGURES 56 – 63 ) rather low; sides of pronotum smooth. Mesoscutum ( Figs. 60 and 61 View FIGURES 56 – 63 ) slightly convex in profile, smooth. Dorsal part of scutellum ( Fig. 61 View FIGURES 56 – 63 ) with ridges running from the margin laterally and posteriorly towards the plate and forwards; dorsoposterior part in dorsal view rounded. Scutellar plate ( Figs. 60 and 61 View FIGURES 56 – 63 ) long and narrow, convex, weakly elevated, with a circular pit close to the posterior margin of the plate. Mesopleuron ( Fig. 60 View FIGURES 56 – 63 ) without subalar pit. Metapleuron ( Fig. 60 View FIGURES 56 – 63 ) slightly sculptured. Forewings ( Fig. 62 View FIGURES 56 – 63 ) hyaline, pubescent, apical margin with hair fringe; marginal cell anteriorly closed; veins pale. Metacoxa ( Fig. 63 View FIGURES 56 – 63 ) with only a few hairs along the posterior margin. Third abdominal tergum of metasoma ( Fig. 60 View FIGURES 56 – 63 ) with very thin hairy ring at base; metasoma distally smooth.
