Oreiscelio rugosus Sundholm, 1970: 375   . Original description.

Description. General: Body length of female: 2.1-2.7 mm (n=20). Body length of male: 2.3-2.5 mm (n=4). Body color: head and mesosoma black; metasoma dark brown to black.

Antenna: Color of antennae in female: dark brown to black throughout. Color of antennae in male: brown. Seta on pedicel of antenna in female: present, reaching past apex of A3.

Head: Color of setae on the head: yellow. Sculpture of dorsal frons between frontal carina and median ocellus: areolate, transversely rugose. Preocellar pit in females: indicated by a small round depression, present as a distinct pit. Transverse rugae at vertex: present. Sculpture of posterior vertex: areolate, transversely strigose. Sculpture of occipital rim: areolate. Interantennal process: simple. Number of anteriorly projecting setae on anteclypeus: 6. Color of mandibles in male: basal half black; apical half pale brown. Color of mandibles in female: basal half black; apical half dark brown, basal half black; apical half pale brown, brown throughout, basal half black; apical half yellow. Mandibular teeth in female: teeth of equal size. Sculpture of ventral gena anterior to genal carina: row of shallow areolae with reduced ridges between cells. Sculpture of ventral gena posterior to genal carina: smooth. Shape of anteclypeus: striplike, straight to slightly convex.

Legs: Color of legs: brown, distal portion of tibiae and tarsomeres 1-4 yellow, apical tarsomere brown.

Mesosoma: Sculpture of dorsal pronotum: areolate. Color of setae on the dorsal mesosoma: yellow. Sculpture of medial mesoscutum: areolate, areolate, with pronounced longitudinal ridges, longitudinally strigose throughout, partially to mostly effaced. Sculpture of lateral mesoscutum: same as medial mesoscutum with a subtle confusion of sculptural elements, smooth throughout, with small patch of smoother sculpture, formed by fusion of sculptural ridges, smooth patch not extending to scutoscutellar sulcus. Notaulus in female: absent. Parapsidal line: delimited, indistinguish-able. Sculpture of scutellum: areolate. Median furrow on scutellum: absent, present as a weak indentation. Posterior margin of scutellum: emarginate, convex. Outer projection of the propodeum: present as distinct corner or posteriorly projecting spine. Posterior margin of propodeal shelf between inner and outer propodeal projections in female: concave. Posterior margin of propodeal shelf between inner and outer propodeal projections in male: concave. Sculpture of ventral pronotum: foveate reticulate,

becoming smooth at anterolateral corner, obliterated, mostly smooth with longitudinal rugulae ventrally. Anterior pronotal pit: absent, small. Pronotal cervical sulcus: poorly defined, well defined by contiguous punctures. Mesepimeral sulcus: indicated by dorsoventral line of foveae, crenulate. Sculpture of femoral depression in female: anterior half smooth, posterior half longitudinally striate. Sculpture of femoral depression in male: with weak transverse striae throughout, anterior half smooth, posterior half longitudinally striate. Mesopleural carina: present as one or two carinae, weakly defined by fine ridges. Sculpture of ventral mesepisternum: with smooth area surrounded by small foveae. Pilosity of metapleural triangle in female: present as many short fine white setae. Pilosity of metapleural triangle in male: present as many short fine white setae. Sculpture of ventral area of metapleuron: smooth, foveate reticulate, with slightly appressed ridges.

Metasoma: Submarginal ridge on T1: percurrent, well-defined, indicated by an irregular ridge, absent, partially fused with marginal carina. Sublateral tergal carina on T2: absent, present in anterior half. Sculpture of T2–T3: reticulate rugose. Sculpture of T4: longitudinally strigose, reticulate rugose. Sculpure of T5: longitudinally strigose. Shape of subapical T 6 in female in dorsal view: short, width along anterior margin at least three times the length. Apex of T 7 in male: slightly convex. Longitudinal medial keel on S1: absent. Sculpture of medial S 2 in female: foveolate. Sculpture of medial S 3 in female: effaced to smooth. Sculpture of medial S 4 in female: effaced to smooth. Sculpture of medial S 5 in female: longitudinally strigose, effaced to smooth. Sculpture of lateral S 3 in female: reticulate rugose, smooth. Sculpture of lateral S 4 in female: reticulate rugose, smooth. Sculpture of lateral S 5 in female: reticulate rugose. Sculpture of marginal depression of S 2 in female: rugulose, smooth. Sculpture of marginal depression of S 3 in female: smooth, rugulose. Sculpture of marginal depression of S 4 in female: rugulose. Sculpture of marginal depression of S 5 in female: rugulose. Apical spine on S 6 in female: extending beyond apex of T6 and visible in dorsal view. Sculpture of medial S 2 in male: punctate reticulate. Sculpture of medial S 3 in male: smooth. Sculpture of lateral S 3 in male: smooth, rugulose. Sculpture of lateral S 4 in male: rugulose. Sculpture of medial S 5 in male: smooth, longitudinally strigose. Sculpture of lateral S 5 in male: longitudinally strigose, rugulose.

Diagnosis. Oreiscelio rugosus   exhibits a large degree of variability in surface sculpture: the dorsal mesoscutum varies between areolate, longitudinally strigose, and mostly effaced; the dorsal frons is areolate to transversely rugose (Figs 13, 14); and the posterior vertex ranges from areolate to transversely rugose. Th is species is most similar to O. badius   but has a more transverse shape of the frons in frontal view (Figs 107) and a preocellar pit (Figs 13, 14). Th e smooth area on the ventral gena anterior to the genal carina is a particularly useful character to identify this species (Fig. 104).
