Antenna clavate; antennomeres in following proportions: 12:6:29:10:9:8:6:7:7:10. ADOs present in antennomeres 5–10. Head convex, dull, granulate, with some hardly visible irregular keels on frons; frontal line absent; occipital carina incomplete, only present behind and on sides of lateral ocelli, laterally not reaching eyes; lateral ocelli situated in front of virtual straight line joining posterior edges of eyes; posterior margin of vertex weakly excavated; POL = 5; OL = 4; OOL = 8; OPL = 3; temple absent; greatest breadth of posterior ocellus about as long as OPL. Pronotum crossed by strong anterior transverse impression and strong posterior transverse furrow; disc humped; posterior collar very short; pronotum dull, granulate and sculptured by many longitudinal keels and striae; pronotal tubercle not reaching tegula. Mesoscutum dull, granulate and reticulate rugose, with areolae very small, larger near posterior margin. Notauli apparently complete and posteriorly separated, hardly visible among areolae situated near posterior margin of mesoscutum; minimum distance between notauli longer than POL (8:5). Mesoscutellum and metanotum granulate. Metapectal-propodeal disc dull, reticulate rugose, slightly longer than propodeal declivity (24:22), without transverse keels; propodeal declivity reticulate rugose, without longitudinal keels. Forewing with two dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein longer than proximal part (20:11) Protarsomeres in following proportions: 21:3:6:18:26. Enlarged claw ( Fig. 126FView FIGURE 126) with one large subdistal tooth and one row of 5 very slender lamellae.
