Anteon tetense Olmi 2008c: 217  .

Description. ♀. Fully winged; body length 2.6–4.0 mm. Head black, except mandible, clypeus and anterior region of frons testaceous; antenna testaceous; mesosoma black, except lateral margins of pronotum testaceous; metasoma brown; legs testaceous. Specimen from South Africa, 32°32.033’S 25°14.267’E, darker, with head totally black, except mandible brown; antenna brown; mesosoma black; metsoma brown; legs brown. Antenna clavate; antennomeres in following proportions: 11:5.5:6:4.5:5:5:5:4:5:7. Head dull, granulate; frontal line complete, partly continuing behind anterior ocellus (frontal line incomplete, only present in posterior half of frons, in specimen from South Africa, 32°32.033’S 25°14.267’E); frons with two lateral keels along orbits and directed towards antennal toruli; occipital carina complete; POL = 6; OL = 5; OOL = 5 OPL = 5; TL = 5; greatest breadth of lateral ocelli shorter than OL (2:5). Pronotum smooth, with slight transverse anterior impression; anterior surface shiny, punctate, unsculptured among punctures; posterior surface approximately as long as mesoscutum (12.5:12), dull, granulate, except few transverse keels situated at anterior margin (keels forming raised transverse carina); pronotal tubercle reaching tegula. Anterior surface of pronotum shorter than posterior surface (7:12.5). Mesoscutum shiny, granulate, unsculptured medially near anterior margin. Notauli incomplete, reaching about 0.3 × length of mesoscutum (0.2 × in specimen from South Africa, 32°32.033’S 25°14.267’E). Mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, unsculptured. Metapectal-propodeal disc with transverse posterior keel, reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity with small areolae, without longitudinal keels. Forewing with two dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein much shorter than proximal part (3:6). Protarsomeres in following proportions: 7:2.5:3.5:12.5:21; protarsomere 2 produced into hook.

Enlarged claw ( Fig. 70EView FIGURE 70) with proximal prominence bearing one long bristle. Protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 70EView FIGURE 70) with two rows of 25–35 lamellae; apex very slender, with group of 3–5 lamellae. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.

♂. Unknown.
