Description

Male (first record)

Body length 1.6–3.1 mm; fore wing length 1.2–2.1 mm. Antenna with 18–27-segmented. Fore wing 4.3– 4.8 times longer than maximum width. Hind femur 2.5–2.8 times longer than maximum broad. Metasoma 1.1–1.2 times longer than head and mesosoma combined, with sixth hardly sclerotised and visible tergites. First metasomal tergite 1.3–1.5 times longer than posterior width. Median length of posterior area of second tergite 0.8–1.0 times median length of the remaining part of tergite. Median length of second tergite (with posterior area) 0.8–1.0 times its anterior width, 1.6–2.0 times length of third tergite. Sometimes third tergite with shallow and rather weak transverse distal furrow and fourth tergite almost without such furrow. Fifth tergite sometimes (in small specimens) almost smooth on posterior half and weakly reticulate-rugulose in anterior half; on posterior margin almost straight, 1.0–1.3 times as long as practically smooth to very finely reticulate sixth tergite, 1.1 times longer than fourth tergite. Otherwise similar to female.
