Description. ♀. Fully winged; body length 2.2–3.0 mm. Head black, except mandible testaceous; antenna tes- taceous; mesosoma black, except tegula testaceous; metasoma brown; legs yellow, occasionally with metacoxa basally brown. Antenna clavate; antennomeres in following proportions: 9:4:3:3:3:3:3:3:3.5:6.5. Head of holotype missing; head of specimen from Madagascar, 21°25.041’S 47°41.945’E, convex, shiny, punctate and sculptured by numerous irregular striae; head of specimen from Madagascar, 21°13.57’S 47°22.19’E, strongly rugose; frontal line complete; occipital carina complete; POL = 5; OL = 4; OOL = 4; OPL = 3; TL = 3. Pronotum of holotype shiny, unsculptured, except transverse keels on anterior surface; pronotum of specimen from Madagascar, 21°25.041’S 47°41.945’E, dull, rugose, except posterior half of posterior surface unsculptured; pronotal tubercle reaching tegula; posterior surface of pronotum much shorter than mesoscutum (4:12). Mesoscutum, mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, unsculptured in holotype, finely punctate and unsculptured among punctures in specimen from Madagascar, 21°25.041’S 47°41.945’E. Notauli incomplete, reaching approximately 0.4–0.5 × length of mesoscutum. Mesopleuron with anterior surface rugose and posterior surface smooth and unsculptured. Metapleuron rugose. Metapectal-propodeal disc with transverse posterior keel, reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity with two complete longitudinal keels; median area mostly smooth, with some keels around margins; lateral areas rugose. Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein much shorter than proximal part (2: 7 in holotype; 2: 9 in specimen from Madagascar, 21°25.041’S 47°41.945’E). Protarsomeres in following proportions: 5:1.5:1.5:2:7.5; protarsomere 4 produced into hook. Enlarged claw ( Fig. 53AView FIGURE 53) with proximal prominence bearing one long bristle. Protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 53AView FIGURE 53) with two rows of five bristles, in addition to five very narrow lamellae; apex with 4–5 lamellae. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.
