Face with a deep sulcus between compound eye and base of mandible that continues along hind margin of compound eye. Mesopleuron with punctures weak, distinct at most on lower half. Propodeum with a full set of carinae enclosing basal, lateral and petiolar areas; basal area about as long as wide, enclosed by strong carinae; petiolar area mostly smooth, with some irregular wrinkles close to its margins. Tergite 2 with longitudinal wrinkles basally, remainder smooth and shining. Females with metasoma slightly laterally compressed and tapered apically.
