Mesopleuron smooth and polished with weak to strong punctures on lower half, upper half largely smooth but with punctures along anterior margin. Propodeum with a full set of carinae enclosing basal, lateral and petiolar areas. Tergite 1 0.9–1.1, tergite 2 0.55–0.7 times as long as wide; tergites 2 and 3 with large, distinct punctures on a rugose or on tergite 3 rather smooth and polished background, punctures with distinct margins. Transverse impressions deep on tergites 1 to 4. Metasoma dorsoventrally depressed.

Colouration of females. Antenna orange, brown dorsally. Head and mesosoma black, face with yellow along inner orbits, usually without yellow central face patch, yellow on clypeus and mouthparts, hind corner of pronotum, tegula, subtegular ridge, shoulder mark, upper mesepimeron; scutellum largely yellow.
