Anteon felice Olmi & van Harten 2006: 319  .

Description. ♀. Fully winged; body length 1.9–2.4 mm. Head black, except mandible testaceous; antenna brown, except scape and pedicel testaceous; mesosoma and metasoma black; legs brown. Antenna clavate; antennomeres in following proportions: 10:5:4:3.5:4:4:4:4:4:6. Head convex, dull, granulate and slightly and irregularly rugose; frontal line complete; frons without lateral keels; occipital carina complete; POL = 7; OL = 4; OOL = 4.5; OPL = 3; TL = 3. Pronotum anteriorly crossed by slight transverse impression, dull, rugose; posterior surface rugose, much shorter than mesoscutum (4:15); pronotal tubercle reaching tegula. Mesoscutum dull, completely granulate, irregularly rugose on sides and near anterior margin. In specimen from Democratic Republic of the Congo, 04°15’S 17°10’E, mesoscutum rugose and with many irregular longitudinal keels. Notauli shortly visible near anterior margin of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum shiny, slightly granulate. In specimen from Democratic Republic of the Congo, 04°15’S 17°10’E, mesoscutellum unsculptured. Metanotum shiny, rugose. Metapectal-propodeal disc with strong transverse posterior keel, dull, reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity dull, reticulate rugose, without longitudinal keels. Forewing with one or two dark transverse bands (two in holotype); distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein much shorter than proximal part (2:8). Protarsomeres in following proportions: 7:1.5:1.5:1.5:7. Enlarged claw ( Fig. 50AView FIGURE 50) with proximal prominence bearing one long bristle. Protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 50AView FIGURE 50) with one row of eight bristles (three bristles thicker than others); apex with one lamella. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.

♂. Fully winged; body length 1.8 mm. Head black, except mandible testaceous; antenna brown, except proxi- mal third of scape and pedicel testaceous; mesosoma and metasoma black; legs brown, except protarsus, protibia and stalk of profemur testaceous. Antenna filiform, covered of setae longer than breadth of antennomeres; antennomeres in following proportions: 8:5.5:4:5:5:4:5:5:4.5:7. Head shiny, slightly granulate and slightly rugose; vertex without two oblique keels from lateral ocelli to occipital carina; frontal line complete; occipital carina complete; POL = 6; OL = 3; OOL = 3; OPL = 2; TL = 2; greatest breadth of lateral ocelli about as long as OPL. Mesoscutum shiny, mostly punctate and unsculptured among punctures, with slight irregular striae on lateral regions and near anterior margin. Notauli thin, incomplete, reaching approximately 0.25 × length of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, unsculptured. Metapectal-propodeal disc dull, reticulate rugose; propodeal declivity completely reticulate rugose, without longitudinal or transverse keels. Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein much shorter than proximal part (2:7). Paramere ( Fig. 49BView FIGURE 49) without distal inner process. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.

Hosts. Unknown.

Distribution. Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Africa, Yemen.

Remarks. The ♂ described above was tentatively attributed to A. felice  , because it was not reared. This attribution was based mainly on the similarity of the mesoscutal sculpture in both sexes and on the same collection locality. Anteon occultum Olmi & van Harten, 2006  was also collected in the same locality, however, the ♀ of this species has a very different mesoscutal sculpture.
