Apenesia malaitensis Brues, 1918 

Apenesia malaitensis Brues 1918  , 62: 124–125. ♀; Fouts 1936, 18: 8 (catalog); Gordh & Móczár 1990, 46: 206 (catalog).

Diagnosis (extracted from literature). Female. Length 4.8 mm. Color. Body castaneous. Mandible with two apical teeth, apical tooth much larger then inner one. Clypeus sharply elevated medially. Eye small, oval. Malar space short. Frons aciculate, punctures small and sparse. Head elongate with sides subparallel, vertex slightly weakly concave, 1/4 × longer than wide. Pronotum 1/2 × longer than wide; neck visible from above disc with sides parallel, anterior margin with median emargination. Mesotibia strongly spinose. Metasoma as long as head and mesosoma together.

Comments. We were not able to examine the type (MCZH). This diagnosis was obtained from Brues (1918). According to him, A. malaitensis  is similar to A. proxima  in color but the former has the head elongate, whereas the latter has the head subquadrate.

Distribution. Australian (Solomons Is.).
