Distribution. Australia (Queensland, New South Wales).

Variation. Body length 4.61–6.20 mm; LFW 3.33–4.04 mm; head with many hairs; clypeus slightly projected; metasoma dark castaneous.

Remarks. This species is similar to E. bilingara   sp. nov. by having the area between the anterior margin of eyes and demarkation of median clypeal lobe short, the head subtriangular in profile and vertex straight, the eyes large, the median clypeal lobe angulate. However this species has the median carina of propodeal disc not reaching propodeal declivity, discal carina of propodeal disc short, the Rs c of forewing with distal region subperpendicular, whereas E. bilingara   sp. nov. has the median carina of propodeal disc reaching propodeal declivity, discal carina of propodeal disc long, the Rs c of forewing with distal region slightly convex.
