Apenesia modesta ( Smith, 1864) 

Scleroderma modesta Smith 1864  , 7: 27. ♀.

Apenesia modesta ( Smith, 1864)  : Westwood 1874, 171 (designation of combination); Westwood 1881, 125, 131, pl vn fig 4; Dalla Torre 1898, 5: 558 (catalog); Kieffer 1908, 76: 25 (catalog); Kieffer 1914, 41: 392, 396; Gordh & Móczár 1990, 46: 207 (catalog).

Diagnosis (extracted from literature). Female. Length 2.0 mm. Color. Body light castaneous, metasoma dark castaneous. Head quadrate, vertex almost straight, corner rounded. Eye dark, rounded with six facets. Malar space short. Mesotibia strongly spinose. Metasoma elongate and lanceolate as long as head and mesosoma together.

Comments. Apenesia modesta  was first described as Sclerodermus  . Since we were not able to access the type for this study, the diagnosis here provided was obtained from the descriptions by Smith (1864) and Westwood’s (1874). Smith defined A. modesta  especially using color details. According to Westwood (1874), the mouthparts of A. modesta  are similar to A. amazonica  . The type material is supposed to be deposited at OXUM.

Distribution. Oriental ( Indonesia).
