Minagenia fulvifemoralis Ji et Ma  , sp. nov.

( Figs 1–21View FIGURES 1 – 7View FIGURES 8 – 21)

Diagnosis. The new species clearly differs from similar Minagenia montisdorsa Dreisbach, 1953  and other congeners by combination of characters: pronotum anteriorly not vertical; gonostylus stout, with long setae apically and medially, inner margin with right angle and long setae medially ( Figs 18, 19View FIGURES 8 – 21); mid and hind femorae reddish-brown.

Description. Female ( Figs 1–7View FIGURES 1 – 7). Body length 5.5–7.0 mm. Clypeus slightly elevated, anterior border nearly truncate medially ( Fig. 1View FIGURES 1 – 7), with dense, small punctures; labrum shortly produced, anterior border slightly convex; mandible apically bidentate ( Fig. 1View FIGURES 1 – 7); frontal line shiny, reaching to median frons ( Fig. 1View FIGURES 1 – 7), frons and vertex with dense, small punctures; ocelli in right triangle ( Fig. 2View FIGURES 1 – 7), ocellar area slightly elevated; A 3 three times longer its width; ratio POD: OOD: Od: OCD = 10: 5: 4: 6; HW: HL = 35: 27; relative length in dorsal view of A 1, A 2, A 3, A 4, A 5, A 8, A 11, A 12 = 10, 5, 11, 11, 10, 8, 7, 8.

Ratio length pronotum and mesoscutum medially = 3: 7, pronotum with dense, small punctures, posterior margin of pronotum slightly angulate medially; mesoscutum with dense, small punctures, parapsids nearly complete, reaching close to pronotum; relative length scutellum, metanotum, metapostnotum and propodeum medially = 12, 5, 5, 25, scutellum elevated, with dense small punctures; metanotum as long as metapostnotum ( Fig. 3View FIGURES 1 – 7), metanotum with dense small punctures; metapostnotum transversally striate, anterior and posterior border medially almost parallel, distinctly longer than laterally, posterad nearly arcuate ( Fig. 3View FIGURES 1 – 7); propodeum densely punctate, without line ( Fig. 3View FIGURES 1 – 7). Second and third radiomedial veins convex and parallel ( Fig. 4View FIGURES 1 – 7), Cu of fore wing reaching apical margin ( Fig. 4View FIGURES 1 – 7). Relative length fore, mid and hind femur/tibia = 54 / 48, 65 / 60, 90 / 96; claws symmetric, bifid, inner teeth obliquely truncate ( Fig. 7View FIGURES 1 – 7); tarsal segment 5 beneath without spines.

Metasoma not petiolate, sternum 2 without transverse furrow; sternum 6 strongly compressed, with a distinct longitudinal ridge ventrally ( Fig. 6View FIGURES 1 – 7).

Black; mandible apically reddish-brown, labial and maxillar palpi brown, scape ventrally with yellowish stripe, fore coxae apically pale yellowish-brown, mid and hind femorae reddish-brown, inner side of mid tibia and basal half of hind tibia inconspicuously brown. Head, mesosoma, metasoma and legs with short whitish setae, metasomal sternum 6 with long, whitish setae.

Male ( Figs 8–21View FIGURES 8 – 21). Differs from female by follows: body length 6.0 mm. A 1, A 2 and fore tarsus mostly brown, fore femora apically, fore tibia and fore tarsus fulvous, hind femora except apical part reddish-brown. Propodeum with long whitish setae. Head as in Figs 8, 9View FIGURES 8 – 21. A 1 carinate beneath; ratio POD: OOD: Od: OCD = 8: 5: 3: 4; HW: HL = 5: 4; relative length of A 1, A 2, A 3, A 4, A 5, A 8, A 12, A 13 = 9, 4, 9, 9, 9, 9, 7, 9. Relative length pronotum and mesoscutum medially = 15: 32; parapsids fine, near complete; relative length scutellum, metanotum, metapostnotum, and propodeum medially = 15, 6, 6, 26; propodeum with shiny inconspicuous longitudinal median line ( Fig. 10View FIGURES 8 – 21). Wing as in Figs 11, 12View FIGURES 8 – 21. Relative length fore, mid and hind femur/tibia = 45 / 32, 50 / 50, 72 / 80; fore claws asymmetric ( Figs 13, 14View FIGURES 8 – 21), inner claw bifid ( Fig. 13View FIGURES 8 – 21); mid and hind claws symmetric, mid claws bifid ( Fig. 15View FIGURES 8 – 21), hind claws simple ( Figs 16, 17View FIGURES 8 – 21). Metasomal sternum 7 strongly compressed; gonostylus stout, with long setae apically and medially, inner margin with right angle and long setae medially ( Figs 18, 19View FIGURES 8 – 21); hypopygium (sternum 8) with tuft of long setae ( Figs 20, 21View FIGURES 8 – 21).
