Antenna clavate; antennomeres in following proportions: 9:4:3:2.5:2.5:3:3:3:3:5. Head dull, completely granulate; in ♀♀ from Dubai, Zabeel, and Afghanistan, near Arghandab River, frons with unsculptured area in front of anterior ocellus; frontal line complete (incomplete in ♀ from Afghanistan, near Arghandab River, and in some ♀♀ from Japan; absent in other ♀♀ from Japan); occipital carina complete; POL = 4; OL = 2.5; OOL = 4; OPL = 3; TL = 5. Pronotum dull, almost completely granulate, only with posterior margin unsculptured; posterior surface shorter than mesoscutum (5:9); pronotal tubercle reaching tegula. Mesoscutum shiny, slightly granulate; in ♀♀ from Oman, South of Dahariz, mesoscutum dull and strongly granulate. Notauli incomplete, reaching approximately 0.3–0.4 × length of mesoscutum. Mesoscutellum and metanotum shiny, unsculptured. Metapectal-propodeal disc dull, reticu- late rugose, with strong transverse posterior keel; propodeal declivity reticulate rugose, without longitudinal keels. Forewing hyaline, without dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein much shorter than proximal part (2.5:5). Protarsomeres in following proportions: 5:2:2.5:4:9. Enlarged claw ( Figs 33D, EView FIGURE 33) with proximal promi- nence bearing one long bristle. Protarsomere 5 ( Figs 33D, EView FIGURE 33) with two rows of approximately 27 bristles, occasion- ally with two rows of approximately 12–13 lamellae in addition to some bristles (occasionally bristles very broad and similar to lamellae); apex with about 4–6 lamellae. Tibial spurs 1/1/2

Hosts. Cicadellidae ( Guglielmino et al. 2013)  : in Japan: Psammotettix alienus (Dahlbom)  (= Psammotettix striatus  (L.)); in Lebanon: Aconurella prolixa (Lethierry)  ; in Turkey: Exitianus capicola (Stål)  .

Distribution. Oman, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, in addition to many Palaearctic countries (from Italy to Japan).

Remarks. The ♂ from South Africa (Roodeplaat Dam) is similar to the ♂♂ known from the Arabian Peninsula, but its antenna is less slender: in ♂♂ from the Arabian Peninsula, antennomere 8 is ~3 × as long as broad (5:1.5); in the ♂ from South Africa, antennomere 8 is ~2 × as long as broad (4:2).
