Head black, except mandible, clypeus and anterior region of frons near clypeus and along inner margin of eyes testaceous; antenna testaceous; propleuron brown, except posterior half and part of lateral regions testaceous; pronotum brown, except anterior margin, lateral regions and posterior tubercle testaceous; rest of mesosoma black, except posterior third of mesoscutum, part of lateral regions of mesoscutum, mesoscutellum and part of metanotum ferruginous; metasoma brown-testaceous; legs testaceous. Antenna clavate; antennomeres in following proportions: 20:7:10:9:7:7:8:8:7:10.5.

Pronotum shiny, strongly crossed by transverse keels, with posterior third smooth, finely punctate, unsculptured among punctures, with posterior surface shorter than mesoscutum (14:18); pronotal tubercle reaching tegula. Mesoscutum shiny, smooth, finely punctate, unsculptured among punctures, with many large punctures situated near anterior margin. Notauli incomplete, reaching approximately 0.7 × length of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, smooth, slightly punctate, unsculptured among punctures. Metapectal-propodeal disc with strong transverse posterior keel, reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity with two longitudinal keels and median area as rugose as lateral areas. Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein much shorter than proximal part (4.5:19). Protarsomeres in following proportions: 10:3.5:6:17:30; protarsomere 4 much longer than basal part of 5 (17:8).
