( Figs 37View FIGURE 37, 38View FIGURE 38 BView FIGURE 38, 39View FIGURE 39 AView FIGURE 39)

Diagnosis. ♂ of Anteon with head granulate and reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity with two longitudinal keels and median area as rugose as lateral areas ( Fig. 39AView FIGURE 39); paramere with rounded distal inner process provided with small papillae on outer margin ( Fig. 38BView FIGURE 38).

Description. ♂ ( Figs 37View FIGURE 37, 39AView FIGURE 39). Fully winged; body length 2.2–2.5 mm. Head black, except mandible testa- ceous; antenna brown-testaceous; mesosoma black; metasoma brown; legs testaceous, except metacoxa and stalk of metafemur partly brown. Antenna filiform; antennomeres in following proportions: 10:5:5:5:5:5:5:5:5 (last antennomere missing in holotype). Head ( Fig. 37CView FIGURE 37) dull, granulate and reticulate rugose; frons without lateral keels near orbits directed towards antennal toruli; frontal line complete; occipital carina complete; POL = 6; OL = 4; OOL = 4; OPL = 3; TL = 2; greatest breadth of lateral ocelli shorter than OL (2:4). Mesoscutum ( Figs 37AView FIGURE 37, 39AView FIGURE 39) granulate, dull. Notauli incomplete, reaching approximately 0.25 × length of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, unsculptured. Metapectal-propodeal disc dull, reticulate rugose, with strong transverse posterior keel; propodeal declivity with two longitudinal keels and median area as rugose as lateral areas. Forewing ( Fig. 37DView FIGURE 37) hyaline, without dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein much shorter than proximal part (2:7). Paramere ( Fig. 38BView FIGURE 38) with distal inner rounded process provided with small papillae on outer margin; proximal membranous process with distal extremity setose. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.

♀. Unknown.
