Apenesia substriata Kieffer, 1904 

( Fig. 26GView FIGURE 26)

Apenesia substriata Kieffer 1904  , 41: 364, 365–366. ♀; Kieffer 1908, 76: 25 (catalog); Kieffer 1914, 41: 392, 395; Evans 1963, 130: 269, 355; Evans 1964, 132: 34; Gordh & Móczár 1990, 46: 212 (catalog).

Diagnosis. Female. Length 4.92 mm. Color. Body light castaneous, metasoma castaneous. Mandible with two apical teeth. Clypeus very short, median lobe trapezoidal, median margin concave, and high medially so that it is triangular in frontal view, margin with bristles, clypeus strongly projected backward between up to top eye level. Eye dark, elliptical, with about eight facets. Malar space shorter than eye length. Frons with very fine striations, punctures small and sparse. Head quadrate with sides parallel and vertex nearly straight (barely concave), 1.17 × as long as wide. Dorsal pronotal area with sides diverging posteriorly. Maximum width of metapectal-propodeal complex 2.0 × its minimum width. Mesotibia strongly spinose, spines wide. Metasoma subpetiolate, as long as head and mesosoma together.

Comments. This species is similar to A. amoena  in having similar body size, quadrate head and mandible with two teeth. However, A. substriata  has the clypeus with the median lobe trapezoidal and the median margin concave, whereas A. amoena  has the clypeus emarginated.
