COLOUR. Head( Figs179–180View Figs 178–182) usually with more or less distinct dark green to bronze reflections.Mandibles reddish-yellow, teeth darker. Antenna ( Fig. 182View Figs 178–182) with scape pale yellow to reddish-brown; pedicel pale yellow to brown; funicle uniformly brown or basally paler; clava, especially ventrally, slightly paler than funicle. Mesosoma ( Fig. 183–185View Figs 183–188) reddish-yellow to reddish-brown. Legs reddish-yellow, except for brownish tips, or hind coxa lighter. Fore wing ( Fig. 186View Figs 183–188) of macropterous and submacropterous forms usually with two large brownish spots, a larger one in middle of wing below marginal vein and a smaller one in apical quarter, the latter sometimes appearing divided into two smaller spots; setation brown. Metasoma with petiole as mesosoma ( Fig. 185View Figs 183–188); gaster ( Figs 178View Figs 178–182, 187View Figs 183–188) reddish-yellow to reddish-brown in basal half and light brown to dark brown in apical half; gt1 usually with two darker spots anterolaterally. Body setation pale except for several large, symmetrically arranged, dark brown setae.

BODY LENGTH. 1.6–2.1 mm.

HEAD. Clypeus virtually smooth; apical margin slightly produced ( Fig. 181View Figs 178–182). Lower face below toruli striate-reticulate, piliferous punctures mostly indistinct. Upper face including vertex densely but finely reticulate, piliferous punctures slightly visible ( Fig. 180View Figs 178–182).

Fu1 length 1.3–1.8 × width; fu7 width 1.1–1.5 × length; clava length 1.8–2.0 × width.

MESOSOMA. Moderately setose dorsally ( Fig. 184View Figs 183–188). Pronotal collar virtually as wide as or slightly narrower than mesoscutum, with six large setae ( Fig. 184View Figs 183–188). Mesoscutum and axillae with extremely fine reticulation, appearing almost smooth ( Fig. 184View Figs 183–188). Scutellar disc with sculpture as mesoscutum and longitudinally striate-reticulate on frenal area ( Figs 184–185View Figs 183–188). Mesepisternum mainly weakly reticulate, almost smooth dorsally ( Fig. 183View Figs 183–188). Mesepimeron smooth; mesepimeral sulcus indistinct ( Fig. 183View Figs 183–188). Propodeum mainly smooth, with intricate pattern of carinae defining a central V-shaped area, interspaces smooth to slightly wrinkled ( Fig. 185View Figs 183–188). Macropterous, submacropterous ( Fig. 178View Figs 178–182) or brachypterous ( Fig. 187View Figs 183–188).

Male (habitus: Fig. 189View Figs 189–190)

Differs from female mainly as follows. Body length: 1.0– 1.8 mm. Head sometimes without distinct metallic reflections ( Fig. 189View Figs 189–190). Flagellum uniformly dark brown to black ( Fig. 190View Figs 189–190). Mesosoma usually dark brown to black ( Fig. 189View Figs 189–190), occasionally with reddish pronotal collar, propodeum and pleura. Gaster dark brown to black ( Fig. 189View Figs 189–190) or with basal half lighter, light brown to reddish-brown. Propodeum more uniformly sculptured, mostly without a well-defined V-shaped area. Fu1 length 1.7–2.0 × width, other funicular segments subequal in length to fu1; combined length of pedicel plus flagellum 2.0–2.5× head width. Gaster (inflated) shorter than mesosoma, length 1.5–1.6 × width.

Distribution

China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Moldavia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia ( Noyes 2018); Bulgaria, France, Greece, Italy (new records).

Remarks

Females of Netomocera setifera  are distinct from those of all other species with a reduced petiole in having a well defined V-shaped area on the propodeum ( Fig. 185View Figs 183–188). Together with males, they display mesosomal colour variation, which can range from yellowish to brown. Except for N. rufa  , both sexes are also unique in having a long and wide pronotal collar ( Figs 183–184View Figs 183–188).
