Frontal vitta triangular, reddish brown. At the level of antenna base, frontal vitta 1.5­1.7 times as wide as fronto­orbital plate anteriorly. Dorsal facets of eye slightly larger than ventral facets. Ocellar setae absent, or present but fine; outer vertical setae absent; inner vertical setae absent. Face black with grey pruinosity. Parafacial with lower part yellow, upper part brown to black with grey pruinosity; not haired; 1.9­2.1 times as wide as first flagellomere. Lower margin of face perpendicular, not projecting, orange yellow, grey pruinose. Vibrissa not differentiated; intervibrissal distance 0.9 times distance between vibrissa and eye on same side; facial ridge with bristles on lower 1/2. Gena yellow or brown, grey pruinose; hairs white; height 0.15­0.18 times eye height. Lunule black and shining; sublunular bulla indistinct. Antenna black; first flagellomere 1.1 times as long as pedicel; arista thickened on basal 0.33­0.4. Length of oral opening 1.5­1.7 times its width. Occiput flattened, white pruinose; hairs white. Palpus yellow, or brown.

Pleuron thinly grey pruinose; hairs white and black; and without scale­like setae. Anepimeral setae hair­like, black; 2 katepisternal setae; 9­12 meral setae. Scutellum black with grey pruinosity, with two pairs of marginal setae; apical setae present and distinct; discal setae randomly arranged, not in rows. Subscutellum not very prominent.

WING. Lower calypter white with light brown infuscation. Wing base without scale­like setae. Tegula black. Basicosta yellow. Wing pictured; white with light brown infuscation, narrow; petiole of apical cell 0.2­0.24 times as long as preceding section of R 4+5; M meeting R 4+5 at acute angle. Halter yellow, or brown. LEGS. Fore femur black; ventrally and laterally with whitish yellow hairs, dorsally with black hairs. Fore tibia black, with 2­3 p, apically with 1 pv, 1 p and 1 pd. Fore tarus black. Fore claws black; 1.1­1.2 times as long as fifth tarsomere. Pulvilli brown. Mid femur black; ventrally and laterally with whitish yellow hairs, dorsally with black hairs. Mid tibia black, with 1 ad and 3­4 p, apically with 1 ad, 1 a, 1 av, 1 pv, 1 p, 0­1 pd, 1 v and 1 d. Hind femur black; hairs black. Hind tibia slightly arched; black, with 3­4 ad and 4­5 pd.

ABDOMEN. Abdominal tergites black; pruinosity brownish yellow (on whole dorsum); longitudinal vitta absent. Relative length of abdominal tergites I+II:III:IV: V = 1.1:1:1:1.1; relative width I+II:III:IV: V = 0.4:1:1:0.8. Syntergite I+II pruinose. Pruinosity of tergites III, IV and V brownish yellow. Hair spots of tergites IV, V indistinct. TERMINALIA. Syncercus long, without notch posteriorly. Surstylus broad apically; arched dorsally; longer than cercus. Ejaculatory apodeme slender. Hypandrium broad, as long as phallapodeme. Pregonite and postgonite pointed. Epiphallus well developed. Phallus short and broad, without fine hairs dorsally; distiphallus branched; dorsolateral process with two pointed branches; ventrolateral process short, with two indistinct blunt branches.

FEMALE. Body size sometimes smaller than male. Wing hyaline. Eyes almost touching. Anterior spine­like setae of hind tibia absent. Abdomen black shining, the junction between tergites and outer side of tergites with thinly grey pruinosity. Sternite VII (sheath) longer than sternite VI; hook­like; sharp apically; bent, apex directed dorsally; smooth ventrally. Ovipositor bent upward.
