Description.

Female. Length 2.0-2.2 mm. Lower face yellow; interantennal area yellowish; upper face and vertex black with area around eye margins yellow; scape yellow except apical half of dorsal surface pale brown, pedicel and flagellum dark brown; mandibles yellow with teeth brown; gena yellow; occiput black. Pronotum with dorsal side black and lateral sides yellowish; mesoscutum, axillae, and scutellum yellow or yellowish, except about posterior 1/6 of scutellum black; dorsellum and lateral panels black; propodeum yellowish, with carina brown; wings hyaline, with veins pale brownish yellow; legs pale yellow, with claws brown; gaster mainly yellowish with apex brown, anterior 1/3 of lateral margins, two spots on median part, and spots on lateral sides of T4-7 dark brown; ovipositor black.

Head (Fig. 3 View Figures 1–6 ) 1.5 × as wide as high in frontal view and 2.0 × as wide as long in dorsal view; frons and vertex smooth, shiny, with very sparsely scattered setae; POL 1.3 × OOL; eye with sparse short pubescence; malar sulcus present, shallow; malar space 0.24 × eye height; mandibles with 6 teeth; occiputal margin with dense setae. Antenna (Fig. 4 View Figures 1–6 ) inserted at high above the lower eye margins and on the middle of between anterior ocellus and lower margin of clypeus; scape exceeding level of vertex and apical 2/3 with setae dorsally. Relative measurements (length : width): scape = 56 : 9; pedicel = 18 : 9; F1 = 28 : 8; F2 = 27 : 8; F3 = 29 : 8; F4 = 26 : 8; clava = 36 : 8 (excluding terminal spine).

Mesosoma (Fig. 1 View Figures 1–6 ). Pronotum with a row of setae on anterior margin and 2 long pale yellow setae on posterior median margin; mesoscutum with anterior half reticulate and posterior half almost smooth; midlobe of mesoscutum with 3 pairs of long setae on median area and 1 pair of long setae on posterior area; axillae and scutellum shiny, light alutaceous; axillae well separated from each other; scutellum with 2 pairs of long setae; sublateral grooves not meeting each other medially on posterior margin; propodeum smooth, with plicae and H-shaped carina; each propodeal callus with 6 long setae; forewing (Fig. 5 View Figures 1–6 ) 2.7 × as long as wide; speculum absent; hind wing (Fig. 6 View Figures 1–6 ) about 6.2 × as long as wide; metatibial spurs shorter than corresponding basitarsomere. Relative measurements (length): SMV = 22; MV = 27; PMV = 11; STV = 8.
