Diagnosis. Fore wing length 4.5–7 mm. Antenna in females with 17–20, in males with 18–21 flagellomeres. Face with punctures disappearing against the coriaceous background. Mesopleuron smooth and polished, with very weak but dense punctures also on upper half. Propodeum with carinae reduced, only pleural and parts of lateral longitudinal carinae present, petiolar area at most weakly indicated by rugae. Tergite 1 1.0– 1.2 times as long as wide in females, 1.2–1.6 in males, tergite 2 0.65–0.8 in females, 0.7–0.9 in males; tergites 2 and 3 strongly coriaceous and matt, punctures indistinct, sculpture extending across transverse impressions. Transverse impressions distinct on tergites 1–3, rarely indicated on tergite 4. Metasoma dorsoventrally depressed.

Colouration of females. Antenna dark brown. Head and mesosoma black, face with yellow along inner orbits, without yellow central face patch, yellow on clypeus and mouthparts, hind corner of pronotum, tegula, subtegular ridge, large shoulder mark, upper mesepimeron; scutellum at least with yellow tip, remainder orange. Mesosoma largely orange, at least on mesopleuron and mesosternum, often also on mesoscutum and part of propodeum; the distinctive orange colouration is very rarely reduced to a dark red on mesopleuron. Legs including coxae orange, fore and mid coxae often with yellow apices; femora orange; hind tibia white with an irregular subbasal dark spot and a dark apex, hind tarsus dark, but first tarsomere with white base. Metasoma black.

Colouration of males. As in females but with yellow ventrally on antenna, entire face, propleuron, most of mesosternum and part of mesopleuron. Fore and mid coxae and part of legs yellow.
