Description. ♂. Fully winged; body length 1.4–1.8 mm. Head black, except mandible testaceous; antenna brown; mesosoma black; metasoma brown; pro- and mesoleg testaceous; metaleg brown in holotype, testaceous in two further specimens from Madagascar, 19°08.31’S 44°49.41’E. Antenna filiform; antennomeres in following proportions: 8.5:5:5:5:5:5.5:5:5.5:5:7. Head shiny, punctate, unsculptured among punctures; vertex of head (ocellar triangle, temple and region behind lateral ocelli) dull and rugose; frontal line complete; occipital carina complete; POL = 5; OL = 3; OOL = 5; OPL = 1.5; TL = 3. Mesoscutum, mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, punctate, unsculptured among punctures. Notauli incomplete, reaching approximately 0.25–0.50 × length of mesoscutum (0.25 × in the holotype; 0.5 × in two further specimens from Madagascar, 19°08.31’S 44°49.41’E). In specimen from South Africa, 34°16.481’S 19°01.033’E, notauli very short, hardly visible near anterior margin of mesoscutum. Metapectal-propodeal disc with strong transverse posterior keel, reticulate rugose, dull; propodeal declivity dull, reticulate rugose, with two longitudinal keels and median area as rugose as lateral areas. In specimen from South Africa, 29°19.1’S 30°15.5’E, propodeal declivity with left longitudinal keel; right longitudinal keel absent. Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein much shorter than proximal part (3:6.5).
