Description. FEMALE (7 specimens). L: 12.6, 12.5 (11.5–13.4).

Head. Distinctly constricted behind eyes. Temples short and rounded Frons smooth centrally. Face coarsely punctate, the punctures confluent, forming transverse wrinkles. Clypeus subtriangular (Ci = 1.7); protruding apical lobe separated from the base by a transverse carina. Labrum clearly distinct below the clypeal lobe. Malar space short (MLMi = 0.5). Mandibles subtriangular with two little blunt teeth. Maxillary and labial palpi with five and four segments respectively. Antenna with 63–64 flagellomeres.

Mesosoma   . Mesonotum and all pleurae deeply and sparsely punctate. Space between punctures smooth. Propodeal carination strong: anterior and posterior transverse carinae stout with distinct lateral apophyses, area basalis short and transverse, area superomedia with wavy lateral carinae, area petiolaris large. Tarsal claws basally pectinate.

Metasoma. Matt, with minute sparses punctures and fine adpressed orange hairs. Glymma shallow, hardly distinct. Tergite II twice as long as wide, the following tergites compressed. Ovipositor short (OTi = 0.7).
