56. Anteon mabibiense Olmi, Copeland & van Noort  , sp. nov.

( Figs 55FView FIGURE 55, 57CView FIGURE 57, 64View FIGURE 64)

Diagnosis. ♀ of Anteon  macropterous, with head and mesosoma completely testaceous ( Fig. 55FView FIGURE 55); pronotum with posterior surface longer than anterior surface, more than 0.5 × as long as mesoscutum; posterior surface of pronotum with raised carina on both anterior and lateral margins; forewing with distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein more than 0.5 × as long as proximal part; propodeal declivity without longitudinal keels; protarsomere 4 much longer than basal part of 5; protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 57CView FIGURE 57) with inner side curvilinear, with distinct apical region, with basal part much shorter than distal part.

Description. ♀ ( Figs 55FView FIGURE 55, 64View FIGURE 64). Fully winged; body length 1.8–2.6 mm. Completely testaceous, except petiole black. Antenna clavate; antennomeres in following proportions: 10:5:5:5:3:4:4:4:4:6. Head dull, granulate; frontal line complete; frons with two lateral keels near orbits and directed towards antennal toruli; occipital carina complete; POL = 5; OL = 5; OOL = 4; OPL = 4; TL = 5; greatest breadth of lateral ocelli shorter than OL (2:5). Pronotum dull, with posterior surface granulate, surrounded by raised carina on both anterior and lateral margins ( Fig. 55FView FIGURE 55); posterior surface slightly shorter than mesoscutum (12:13) and much longer than anterior surface (12:4); pronotal tubercle reaching tegula. Mesoscutum dull, weakly granulate. Notauli incomplete, hardly visible, reaching approximately 0.3 × length of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, unsculptured. Metapectal-propodeal disc with strong transverse posterior keel, reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity reticulate rugose, with areolae very small (almost granulate), without longitudinal keels. Forewing ( Fig. 64DView FIGURE 64) with two dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein slightly shorter than proximal part (4:5). Protarsomeres in following proportions: 5:2:3:9:18; protarsomere 4 much longer than basal part of 5 (9:4). Enlarged claw ( Fig. 57CView FIGURE 57) with proximal prominence bearing one long bristle. Protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 57CView FIGURE 57) with basal part much shorter than apical part (4:14), with two rows of 17 + 21 lamellae; apex with four lamellae, one of which very long. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.
