Description. ♀. Fully winged; body length 4.1–4.2 mm. Head and mesosoma completely testaceous-reddish; an- tenna of holotype testaceous, except antennomeres 9–10 brown; antenna of specimen from Madagascar, 19°08.31’S 44°49.41’E, testaceous, except antennomeres 5–10 brown; antenna of two ♀♀ from Madagascar, 16°00.36’S 45°15.54’E, completely testaceous; metasoma brown-black; legs testaceous, except stalk of metafemur with inner side brown; legs of two ♀♀ from Madagascar, 16°00.36’S 45°15.54’E, totally testaceous. In specimen from Kenya, 0.32442°N 38.05038°E, frons and mesoscutum partly darkened. In specimen from Kenya, 2.07836°S 38.22517°E, head testaceous-reddish, except ocellar triangle brown; antenna testaceous, except antennomeres 4–10 brown. Antenna distally thickened, short, usually with antennomeres 5–9 approximately as long as broad, occasionally (in specimen from Kenya, 2.07836°S 38.22517°E) with antennomeres 5–9 slightly longer than broad; antennomeres in following proportions: 18:8:12:8:8:7:6:6:6:10. Head convex, dull, covered with short setae, completely reticulate rugose; frontal line complete; occipital carina complete; POL = 4; OL = 3.5; OOL = 12; OPL = 12; TL = 11. Pronotum crossed by strong transverse impression, dull, reticulate rugose; pronotal tubercle reaching tegula. Mesoscutum, mesoscutellum and metanotum dull, reticulate rugose. Notauli complete, posteriorly separated; minimum distance between notauli much longer than greatest breadth of lateral ocelli (10:4). In specimen from Kenya, 0.32442°N 38.05038°E, notauli not visible among areolae of mesoscutum. Mesopleuron dull, reticulate rugose. Metapleuron dull, sculptured by numerous strong transverse keels. Metapectal-propodeal disc with strong transverse posterior keel, dull, rugose, with few very large areolae (inner surface of areolae shiny and slightly rugose); propodeal declivity dull, with two complete longitudinal keels and median and lateral areas sculptured by numerous transverse keels. Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein approximately as long as proximal part (11:11); 2R1 cell open. Petiole long, much shorter than half of metasoma. Protarsomeres in following proportions: 65:12:10:44:60. Enlarged claw ( Fig. 101CView FIGURE 101) with one row of 5–11 teeth and one bristle. Protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 101CView FIGURE 101) with one preapical lamella, inner band and three-eight bristles (in specimen from Kenya, 2.07836°S 38.22517°E, two bristles). Tibial spurs 1/1/1 (for mistake 1/1/ 2 in original description).
