( Figs 7 View FIGURES 1 – 9 , 15 View FIGURES 10 – 18 , 21 View FIGURES 19 – 22 , 28 View FIGURES 23 – 30 , 42, 43 View FIGURES 39 – 47 )

Description. MALE. Body length 1.7 mm. LFW 1.4 mm. Color. Head dark castaneous; mandible, clypeus, mesosoma and metasoma castaneous; antenna and legs light castaneous; wings hyaline.

Head ( Fig. 7 View FIGURES 1 – 9 ). Mandible with teeth small and almost equally sized. Apical margin of median clypeal lobe straight. Flagellomeres long; four first antennomeres in ratio about 13:4:8:5; pedicel 1.3 × as long as wide; F1 long, 2.6 × as long as wide; F9 1.7 × as long as wide; flagellar setae suberect. Frontal carina absent. WH 0.9 × LH. WF 0.7 × WH. WF 1.4 × HE. Eye small, salient. Ocellus small. DAO 0.2 × WF. Frontal angle of ocellar triangle acute. WOT 2.3 × DAO. OOL 1.2 × WOT. Distance of posterior ocellus to vertex crest 0.8 × DAO. VOL 0.9 × HE. Temple parallel or almost this. Vertex straight.

Mesosoma ( Figs 15 View FIGURES 10 – 18 , 21 View FIGURES 19 – 22 ). Pronotal disc and mesonotum sparsely punctate. Pronotal collar short. Pronotal declivity low. Pronotal disc 0.5 × as long as wide; anterior region 0.4× as long as wide; rounded. Notauli conspicuous, occupying one third of mesoscutum. Scutellar furrow wide, deep, slightly scrobiculate; corner convex. Median region of scutellum slightly coriaceous, punctate. Median region of metanotum short, wide; inner foveae of metanotal furrow not delimited. Propodeal disc 1.3 × as long as wide; 0.5 × as high as long; imbricatepolished; lateral carina conspicuous; propodeal declivity polished; side of propodeum slightly imbricate. Mesopleuron polished; transversal furrow inconspicuous. Discoidal vein not pigmented.

Metasoma. Petiole short; 0.2 × as long as propodeal disc. Hypopygium ( Fig. 28 View FIGURES 23 – 30 ) 1.0 × as long as wide; posterior margin strongly trilobate; median lobe angulate, slender; posterior projection short; lateral lobe angulate; lateral margin medially angulate; anterior pigmented line strongly pigmented, slender; lateral stalk absent. Genitalia ( Figs 41– 42 View FIGURES 39 – 47 ): aedeagus slightly mesoconvex; projection of apical region ventrad absent; dorsal paramere shorter than ventral paramere, slightly wider as ventral paramere, inner margin straight, outer margin straight; membranous region of basiparamere forming two frontal large lobes; sclerite on volsella base absent.

FEMALE unknown.

Material examined. Holotype, ♂. THAILAND, Chaiyaphum, Tat Tone NP, Oficer house at Tat Fah waterfall, 15°56.461’N 102°5.955’E, 242 m, MT, 5–12.III.2007, Tawit Jaruphan & Orawan Budsawong leg., T2347 ( QSBG). GoogleMaps

Distribution. Thailand (Chaiyaphum).

Remarks. It is similar to C. salum sp. nov. by having the flagellomere I long, the ocelli small, the temple almost parallel. However, C. thanum sp. nov. has the apical margin of median clypeal lobe straight, the pronotal collar short, the pronotal declivity short, the inner foveae of metanotal furrow not delimited; transversal furrow of mesopleuron inconspicuous, the hypopygium with lateral margin medially angulate, the dorsal paramere shorter than ventral paramere, the membranous region of paramere forming two large frontal lobes, and the volsella base without sclerite, whereas C. salum sp. nov. has the apical margin of median clypeal lobe angularly concave, the pronotal collar long, the pronotal declivity long, the inner foveae of metanotal furrow delimited, transversal furrow of mesopleuron slightly scrobiculate, the hypopygium with lateral margin slightly convex, the dorsal paramere slightly longer than ventral paramere, the membranous region of paramere with apical corner strongly developed, and sclerite on volsella base present.
