DIAGNOSIS. — Phanuromyia flaviabdominalis  n. sp. can be distinguished from P. levigatus  n. sp. in having entire frons reticulate and T2 with vertical striae beneath basal foveae; whereas in P. levigatus  n. sp. upper frons is smooth, lower frons striate-reticulate and T2 smooth without vertical striae beneath basal foveae; P. flaviabdominalis  n. sp. can also be distinguished from P. rufocoxalis  n. sp. and P. shashikalae  n. sp. by the absence of central keel, a shorter mesoscutellum and mesopleuron with prespecular and mesepimeral sulci foveate; whereas in the other two species central keel is present, mesoscutellum at least 0.5 × as long as wide and mesopleuron with prespecular and mespimeral sulci nonfoveate.

ETYMOLOGY. — This species is named ‘flaviabdominalis’ denoting the yellow metasoma. The name is treated as an adjective.

FCI=1.2; LCI =1.44; IOS subequal to eye length; entire frons coriaceous reticulate, reticulations wider than long above interantennal process; lower gena smooth remainder weakly reticulate; vertex coriaceous reticulate, sparsely setose; eyes (L: W= 18.5: 16.1) large, bare; POL: LOL in ratio of 17.0: 7.6; lateral ocelli contiguous with orbits; a blunt hyperoccipital carina present beyond which a reticulate preoccipital area present with several long setae; occiput reticulate.

Mesosoma ( Fig. 1A, C, EView FIG)

Mesoscutum (L: W = 17.5: 30.4) coriaceous reticulate; lateral pronotal area dorsally coriaceous reticulate, remainder smooth; mesopleuron with prespecular sulcus foveate; sternaulus (sensu Miko 2007) indicated as a weak carina; mesopleural pit distinct and mesepimeral sulcus foveate; mesopleural carina distinct, mesopleural depression smooth to weakly reticulate; anterior margin of metapleuron foveate; metapleural pit distinct with sparse striae radiating ventrally; scutoscutellar sulcus wide, foveate only laterally; mesoscutellum semicircular (L: W=3.2: 11.4), entirely smooth, posterior mesoscutellar sulcus deeply foveate; metascutellum smooth with foveae on anterior margin; metanotal trough smooth with weak foveae on posterior margin; lateral propodeal area smooth; fore wing (L:W =66.1: 19.7) and hind wing (L: W =58.5: 8.8) with dense microtrichia; length of fore wing and hind wing marginal cilia 0.23 × and 0.72 × width of their respective wings.

Metasoma ( Fig. 1AView FIG)

(L: W =44.6: 24.9); T1 foveate anteromedially, with a sharp carina laterad which extends the entire length of tergite, remain- der smooth; T1 with two lateral and one sublateral setae; T2 with anteromedial basal foveae, followed by weak striae some of which extend medially up to ¾ length of tergite, remainder smooth; length and width of tergites T1: T 2 in ratio of 5.0: 14.0, 27.6: 23.1, respectively; last tergite with ovipositor upturned.
