Liomutilla André, 1907

Liomutilla André, 1907: 340 .

Type species. Liomutilla canariensis André, 1907 (♀), by monotypy.

Diagnosis. ♀. Head entirely reddish; integument of the body polished and shiny; head with scattered and fine punctures; supra-antennal tooth absent; frontal carina touching inner margin of eye; antennal rim entirely exposed, visible dorsally; gena (lateral view) more or less concave, slim, angulate, without tooth-like process; genal carina present; occipital margin curved; upper part of occipital carina as wide rim; T 2 with two round cuticular ivory spots disposed transversely, without setae; spots of T 2 far from anterior margin (distance between spots and anterior margin more than diameter of each spot).

♂. Head entirely brownish orange; integument of the body polished and shiny; head with scattered and fine punctures; head strongly convergent toward occipital margin; longitudinal frontal furrow present, touching anterior ocellus; ocelli well developed tegula and wings well developed, not reduced; notaulus absent, parapsidal line present; fore wing with vein 2 m-cu absent; metasoma entirely brownish orange; T 2 without pale spots; S 8 with sides subparallel, with two raised tooth-like ventral and median processes disposed transversely; genital capsule with cuspis of volsella elongate, finger-shaped, apex regularly rounded, weakly convex to flat toward apex, ending well beyond mid length of paramere harpe, without longitudinal carina; digitus of volsella much shorter than cuspis, about half its length; midventral process of penis valve present, elongate and strongly curved.

Redescription. ♀. Head entirely reddish with antennal rim concolorous with rest of head ( Figs 33 View FIGURE 33 A, 33 B, 33 C); mesosoma reddish orange darkened anteromedially and on sides ( Figs 32 View FIGURE 32 A, 32 B); metasoma entirely blackish ( Figs 32 View FIGURE 32 A, 32 B); integument of the body polished and shiny; head regularly rounded behind eyes, with scattered and fine punctures, without whitish setal spot on vertex and occiput ( Fig. 33 View FIGURE 33 A); supra-antennal tooth absent ( Figs 33 View FIGURE 33 A, 33 D); antennal rim entirely exposed, visible dorsally ( Fig. 33 View FIGURE 33 A); A 1 with ventro-lateral carina; A 3 much more than two times length of A 2; frontal carina touching inner margin of eye ( Fig. 33 View FIGURE 33 D); postgena (behind oral fossa) weakly concave ( Fig. 33 View FIGURE 33 B); occipital margin curved ( Fig. 33 View FIGURE 33 A); upper part of occipital carina as wide rim; lower part of occipital carina as well raised lamella; gena (lateral view) with lower half slim, angulate, without tooth-like process ( Fig. 33 View FIGURE 33 B); genal carina present ( Fig. 33 View FIGURE 33 B); clypeus not prominent, wider than high, anterior margin wide, concave with lateral tooth-like projection ( Fig. 33 View FIGURE 33 D); oral fossa longer than wide, almost Ushaped; mandible with inner apical tooth normally shaped, not curved ( Fig. 33 View FIGURE 33 D); mandible with inner basal tooth ( Fig. 33 View FIGURE 33 D); pronotum slightly narrower than propodeum ( Fig. 32 View FIGURE 32 A); pronotum with epomial carina weak, far from pronotal spiracle; fore coxa with distal tooth-like process; mid tibia with 6–7 dorsal pre-apical spines arranged in two rows; hind tibia with 5 dorsal pre-apical spines arranged in two rows; T 2 with two round cuticular ivory spots disposed transversely without setae, far from anterior margin (distance between spot and anterior margin of T 2 much more than diameter of a spot ( Figs 32 View FIGURE 32 A, 32 B); T 3 with broad pubescent band, widely interrupted medially ( Figs 32 View FIGURE 32 A, 32 B); T 4 without broad pubescent band ( Figs 32 View FIGURE 32 A, 32 B); S 6 flat.
