Material examined. CHINA: FUJIAN, Jiangle , 7–10.vii.1991, N.-q. Lin [2 ♀, FAFU]  . HUBEI, Lichuan , 24.viii.1989, D. Huang [1 ♀, FAFU]  . ZHEJIANG, Tianmu Mt. , 6.vi.1964, T. Chen [1 ♀, FAFU]  .

Redescription. FEMALE. Body length 1426–1465 µm. Body brown to dark brown; antennal flagellum dark brown, radicle and scape yellow, pedicel yellowish brown to brown; legs yellowish brown.

Antenna ( Fig. 9View FIGURES 9 – 12) with radicle about 0.2× total length of scape, rest of scape 3.6–3.9× as long as wide; pedicel slightly longer than F1; F1 the shortest funicle segment, F2–F7 subequal in length; mps on F2 (1) and F3–F8 (2 on each); clava long, with 8 mps, 5.2–5.6× as long as wide.

Mesosoma shorter than metasoma. Propodeum ( Fig. 10View FIGURES 9 – 12) with well-developed submedian carinae extending to anterior margin and not connecting to each other. Fore wing ( Fig. 11View FIGURES 9 – 12) 3.0–3.2× as long as wide, longest marginal seta 0.1–0.2× maximum wing width, with disc slightly infumate throughout, mostly bare behind venation except for a few setae behind stigmal vein.
