Differential diagnosis

Within the argentatus group, S. lanatus is characterized through its entirely silvery vestiture. Females ( Fig. 50 View Figs 49–56. 49 ) can be distinguished from those of S. feijeni nom. nov. ( Fig. 43 View Figs 41–48. 41–42, 45 ) through having the propodeal sculpture largely obscured by appressed setae, whereas the propodeal vestiture is more sparse in that species and leaves 7–10 distinct transversal ridges visible that are absent in S. lanatus . Females of S. erythrinus are distinguishable through their yellow-tinged wings ( Fig. 41 View Figs 41–48. 41–42, 45 ).

Males of S. lanatus are recognizable by their longer and more slender petiole, the length of which is greater than 2.7 times its medial width. This coefficient is notably smaller than 2.4 in males of S. erythrinus ( Fig. 42 View Figs 41–48. 41–42, 45 ) and S. feijeni nom. nov. ( Fig. 44 View Figs 41–48. 41–42, 45 ). Furthermore, S. erythrinus and S. feijeni nom. nov. have the placoids covering at least flagellomeres III–V, whereas S. lanatus has only a single placoid on flagellomere V. Finally, S. rufinervis is similar ( Fig. 51 View Figs 49–56. 49 ), but its erect clypeal setae are partially or completely black in both sexes.

Description

Female

SIZE. 21.2–33.3 mm.

COLOR. Black except for the following, which are dark ferruginous: basal half of mandible and legs from trochanter onward, especially femur and tibia of mid- and hindlegs. Cellular wing area hyaline, base of fore- and hindwing infuscate, apical margin of forewing fuscous.

VESTITURE. Appressed and erect setae on clypeus, paraocular area, collar, scutum and propodeal enclosure silvery. Erect propodeal setae crimped, oriented anteriorly. Clypeus without glabrous stripe. Scutellum densely and finely pubescent.

STRUCTURE. Free clypeal margin simple, not stepped medially. Clypeus without indentation or carina. Scutellum convex. Metanotum raised, notably bituberculate. 2 nd recurrent vein joins markedly proximal from interstitium between submarginal cells II and III. Propodeal enclosure without any notable ridges. Foretarsomere I 2.7–2.8× length of antepenultimate spine. Petiole length 2.3–2.5 × its medial width.

Male

SIZE. 17.6–23.8 mm.

COLOR. Black except for the following, which are dark ferruginous: stripe in center of mandible, hindtibia and often part of hindfemur. Cellular wing area hyaline, base of fore- and hindwing infuscate, forewing with fuscous spot beyond marginal cell.

VESTITURE. Appressed setae on clypeus, paraocular area, collar, scutum and propodeal enclosure silvery. Erect setae on clypeus and paraocular area silvery intermixed with black ones, exclusively silvery on collar, scutum and propodeal enclosure. Erect propodeal setae crimped, oriented anteriorly. Clypeus without glabrous stripe. Scutellum densely and finely pubescent.

STRUCTURE. Free clypeal margin simple. Scutellum convex. Metanotum raised, notably bituberculate. 2 nd recurrent vein joins markedly proximal from interstitium between submarginal cells II and III. Posterior margin of metasomal tergum VII convex. Posterior margin of metasomal sternum VII simple, of metasomal sternum VIII very slightly concavely emarginate. Penis valvae without conspicuos modifications. Petiole length 2.8–3.0× its medial width. Flagellomere V with narrow placoid covering its proximal two-thirds.

Variation
