Scleroderma parasitica Smith 1865  , 8: 79, ♀.

Apenesia parasitica ( Smith, 1865)  : Westwood 1881, 132 (designation of combination); Dalla Torre 1898, 5: 558 (catalog); Kieffer 1908, 76: 25 (catalog); Kieffer 1914, 41: 392, 394; Gordh & Móczár 1990, 46: 209 (catalog).

Frons polished, punctures small and very sparse. Head weakly elongate with sides subparallel, vertex slightly concave, 1.3 × as long as wide, occipital carina visible in dorsal view. Dorsal pronotal area short with sides subparallel, anterior margin with median emargination. Maximum width of metapectal-propodeal complex 1.6 × its minimum width. Mesopleuron without carina dividing dorsal and lateral faces. Mesotibia strongly spinose. Metasoma longer than head and mesosoma together, petiole short.

Comments. Gordh & Móczár (1990) assigned the authorship of this species as “ Smith, 1864 ”. This paper exists but the correct year of publication is “ Smith, 1865 ”. Apenesia parasitica  was available for this study using the illustrations included in this paper. Our diagnosis is based on those illustrations and the descriptions provided by Smith (1865) and Westwood (1881). Although there is a syntype label attached to the specimen, in the original description only one specimen was listed as material examined.

Distribution. Oriental ( Indonesia).
