Gondwanadryinus fisheri Olmi 2007c: 16   ; Azevedo et al. 2010: 884.

Description. ♀ ( Figs 255D, E View FIGURE 255 ). Apterous; body length 1.3 mm. Completely testaceous, except petiole and reduced eye black. Antenna clavate, thickened, with ADOs in antennomeres 3–10 (two in antennomere 10); antennomeres in following proportions: 6:2:1:2:2:2:2:2:2:3; antennomeres 1 and 10 longer than broad; antennomeres 2–9 as long as broad, or broader than long; antennal toruli contiguous with lateral margins of clypeus. Head trapezoidal in dorsal view ( Fig. 255D View FIGURE 255 ), broader than long (13:10), shiny, covered with short and fine setae, slightly granulate; vertex of head flat; frons slightly convex ( Fig. 255E View FIGURE 255 ); eye very small, reduced to small group of ommatidia ( Figs 255D, E View FIGURE 255 ); ocelli absent; occipital carina complete; frontal line absent; clypeus with ventral margin straight; temple very long ( Fig. 255E View FIGURE 255 ). Propleuron mobile and articulated. Pronotum as sculptured as head, with posterior margin curved and with dorsal surface flat. Mesoscutum very short, slightly visible between two posterior angles of pronotum. Remaining part of mesosoma with no sutures separating mesoscutellum, metanotum and metapectal-propodeal disc (sutures also absent laterally); meso-metapleural suture obsolete; mesosoma as sculptured as head; fused part of mesosoma cylindric and divided into two regions (anterior flat dorsal region (corresponding to mesoscutellum, metanotum and metapectal-propodeal disc) and posterior inclined region (corresponding to propodeal declivity)); in anterior dorsal region, no sutures visible; epicnemium not visible (holotype very small, so that is not easy to distinguish an epicnemium); metapectal-propodeal disc as sculptured as head; propodeal declivity anteriorly delimited by strong keel separating it from anterior dorsal region, separated from lateral regions of mesosoma by numerous short transverse keels, almost completely unsculptured, except few transverse striae near apex. Protarsomeres in following proportions: 3:1:1.5:2:6. Protarsomere 3 produced into hook. Enlarged claw ( Fig. 256E View FIGURE 256 ) without subapical teeth, with two proximal bristles. Protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 256E View FIGURE 256 ) with two rows of 1 (long) + 8 (short) lamellae; apex with three lamellae. Tibial spurs 1/0/1.
