Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein slightly shorter than proximal part (11:13). Petiole very long, much shorter than metasoma (6:27). Protarsomeres in following proportions: 15:3:3.5:14:17. Enlarged claw ( Fig. 101D View FIGURE 101 ) with one row of four-nine teeth (nine in holotype) and one bristle. Protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 101D View FIGURE 101 ) with one preapical lamella, two bristles and an inner band. Tibial spurs 1/1/1.

♂. Fully winged; body length 1.5–2.2 mm. Head black, except mandible testaceous; mesosoma black; meta- soma brown; antenna testaceous; legs testaceous, except coxae and clubs of femora partly darkened. Antennae filiform; antennomeres in following proportions: 8:5:5.5:5:5:5:4.5:4.5:4:7; antennomere 8 less than 3 × as long as broad (4.5:2). Head convex, dull, covered with short setae, granulate and reticulate rugose; frontal line complete; occipital carina complete; POL = 5; OL = 2; OOL = 4.5; OPL = 3; TL = 2; greatest breadth of lateral ocelli about as long as OPL. Mesoscutum dull, completely granulate and reticulate rugose. Notauli incomplete, reaching approximately 0.7 × length of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, punctate, unsculptured among punctures. Mesopleuron dull, granulate. Metapleuron dull, sculptured by numerous strong transverse keels. Metapectal-propodeal disc with strong transverse posterior keel, dull, reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity dull, with two complete longitudinal keels, lateral areas completely reticulate rugose and median area partly shiny and unsculptured. Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands; 2r-rs&Rs vein regularly curved with no distinct separation between distal and proximal part; 2R1 cell open. Apex of basivolsella without subdistal inner pointed apophysis ( Fig. 108D View FIGURE 108 ). Tibial spurs 1/1/2.
