Description. FEMALE. Body length (dry-mounted paratypes) 960–1190 µm. Head and mesosoma mostly dark brown with some brown; radicle yellowish, scape and pedicel light brown to brown, flagellum dark brown; gaster yellow or light brown basally and brown to dark brown apically; legs light brown to brown.

Antenna ( Fig. 28 View FIGURES 28 – 31 ) with radicle 3.4 –4.0× as long as wide, 0.34–0.39 × total length of scape, rest of scape finely longitudinally striate, 2.8–3.1 × as long as wide; pedicel at least slightly longer than F 1; F 1 shorter than F 2 (usually the longest funicle segment), F 3 as long as or almost as long as F 2, F 4 about as long as F 5, F 6 normally the shortest funicle segment (when lacking mps) or almost as long as F 4 (when bearing a mps), F 7 as long as F 8, mps on F 5 (1), F 6 (usually 0, occasionally 1 on one antenna), F 7 (2), and F 8 (2); clava with 8 mps, 3.6–4.5 × as long as wide, at least slightly longer than combined length of F 6 –F 8.

Mesosoma ( Fig. 29 View FIGURES 28 – 31 ). Propodeum with submedian lines fine, incomplete, usually barely visible. Fore wing ( Fig. 30 View FIGURES 28 – 31 ) 3.9–4.1 × as long as wide; longest marginal seta 0.38–0.4 × maximum wing width. Fore wing disc slightly infumate throughout, mostly bare behind submarginal vein (except for a few setae behind its apex) and setose elsewhere. Hind wing ( Fig. 31 View FIGURES 28 – 31 ) 26–29 × as long as wide; disc bare except for rows of setae along margins and a few additional, scattered setae, slightly infumate; longest marginal seta about 3.5 –4.0× maximum wing width.

Metasoma ( Fig. 29 View FIGURES 28 – 31 ). Gaster longer than mesosoma. Petiole short, trapezoidal. Ovipositor 0.7–0.8 × length of gaster, not exserted beyond its apex; ovipositor length: mesotibia length ratio 1.3–1.4: 1.

Measurements (µm) of the holotype. Mesosoma 443; petiole 30; gaster 615; ovipositor 473. Antenna: radicle 73; rest of scape 113; pedicel 69; F 1 52; F 2 70; F 3 68; F 4 55; F 5 55; F 6 48; F 7 61; F 8 61; clava 219. Fore wing 1323: 326; longest marginal seta 124. Hind wing 1039: 39; longest marginal seta 139.

MALE. Unknown.

Diagnosis. Gonatocerus koziavka   is most similar to G. cincticipitis   from which it differs by the female characters indicated in the key, and also by the larger body size.

Etymology. The species name is a noun in apposition meaning “a bug” in Russian.

Hosts. Unknown.
