Diagnosis. Fore wing length 3.9–5.2 mm. Antenna of both sexes with 16–17 flagellomeres. Face with punctures clearly distinct from the background sculpture. Mesopleuron smooth and polished weakly punctate largely restricted to lower half. Propodeum with a full set of carinae enclosing basal, lateral and petiolar areas. Tergite 1 0.9–1.1 times as long as wide in females, 1.0– 1.4 in males, tergite 2 0.55–0.7 in females and 0.6–0.8 in males; tergites 2 and 3 with large, distinct punctures on a smooth and polished background, on tergite 2 sometimes slightly more rugose, but punctures always with distinct margins. Transverse impressions deep on tergites 1 to 4. Metasoma dorsoventrally depressed.

Colouration of females. Antenna dark brown, sometimes paler below. 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, shoulder mark, upper mesepimeron; scutellum largely yellow. Legs orange, fore and mid coxae entirely yellow, hind coxa orange; femora orange; hind tibia black-white-black banded, hind tarsus dark. Metasoma black, often with yellow spots on apical corners of tergites 2 and sometimes 3.

Colouration of males. As in females but with yellow ventrally on scape and pedicel and often entire antenna, entire face, propleuron, epicnemium and part of mesosternum. Hind coxa usually yellow. Metasoma often marked with yellow stripes behind transverse impressions on tergites 2 to 3 or 4.

Notes. Diplazon tetragonopsis Uchida has variously been synonymized with D. tetragonus or D. scutatorius in the past. I here confirm Diller’s (1982) interpretation of the type of D. tetragonopsis .
