Body length 3.8 mm, fore wing length 3.3 mm and antenna length 5.1 mm.

Antenna with 40–42 flagellomeres. Penultimate flagellomeres approximately 2.5 x longer than wide. Median flagellomeres approximately 2.7 x longer than wide. Occipital carina complete mediodorsally, almost forming a point. Mesopleuron largely rugulose with distinct longitudinal striation posteriorly, precoxal sulcus weakly impressed, coarsely sculptured, speculum absent. Midlongitudinal propodeal carina present on anterior 0.5 only. Fore wing vein 2-CU1 1.9 x 1-CU1. Apex of fore wing subbasal cell evenly densely setose. Fore wing vein 3-SR 1 x vein r. Fore wing vein 2-SR+M 1.1 x vein r. Fore wing vein SR1 4 x vein 3-SR. Hind wing vein M+CU 1.25 x 1- M. Hind wing subbasal cell both evenly densely setose. Hind wing vein m-cu absent. Apex of hind tibia with comb of modified adpressed setae medially and ventrally, but these a little more distinctly separated than in most taxa with comb present. Claws pectinate with 5 well spaced robust teeth between base of basal lobe and base of claw proper. Basal lobes of first tergite distinct, subtriangular. Midlongitudinal carina of 3 rd tergite present on anterior 0.7.

Etymology. Named because of its distinctly swollen maxillary palp segments.
