Description. ♀ ( Fig. 90F View FIGURE 90 ). Fully winged; body length 3.75–6.50 mm. Completely testaceous-reddish, except petiole black, antennomeres 5–10 or 7–10 brown and small black spots on ocellar triangle. Specimen from Madagascar, 20°47.56’S 47°10.54’E, with head brown, except anterior third of frons, clypeus and mandible testaceous; antenna testaceous-brown, except antennomeres 7–10 brown; mesosoma brown, except part of lateral regions of prothorax and mesopleuron ferruginous, metanotum, metapectal-propodeal disc and propodeal declivity black; metasoma and legs brown. Very large specimen (6.5 mm) from Madagascar, 21°15.05’S 47°24.43’E, testaceous-reddish, except head completely black, antennomeres 7–10 brown, club of profemur brown, stalk of metafemur black. In specimen from Madagascar, 22°49.08’S 43°30.13’E, head and mesosoma reddish-brown, except metapectal-propodeal disc and propodeal declivity black. Antenna clavate; antennomeres in following proportions: 9:6:15:7:7:7:7:7:7:8. Head flat, shiny, strongly punctate, unsculptured among punctures; anterior third of frons very strongly punctate, almost reticulate rugose; frontal line incomplete, only present in anterior half of frons; frons without lateral keels near orbits directed towards antennal toruli; vertex behind ocellar triangle without two oblique keels connecting lateral ocelli to occipital carina; occipital carina complete; holotype with POL = 4; OL = 2; OOL = 10; OPL = 10; TL = 7.5. In specimen from Madagascar, 22°49.08’S 43°30.13’E, POL = 5; OPL = 6. Pronotum anteriorly crossed by strong transverse impression, shiny, finely punctate, unsculptured among punctures; posterior surface approximately as long as broad, shorter than mesoscutum (10:23), with lateral margins sharp; pronotal tubercle reaching tegula Mesoscutum and mesoscutellum shiny, punctate, unsculptured among punctures. Notauli incomplete, reaching approximately 0.60–0.65 × length of mesoscutum. Metanotum shiny, unsculptured. Metapectal-propodeal disc reticulate rugose, without transverse posterior keel; propodeal declivity almost completely dull and reticulate rugose, except very small central unsculptured area. Forewing with two dark transverse bands; distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein longer than proximal part (16:11). Protarsomeres of holotype in following proportions: 10:3:6:11:24. Protarsomeres of specimen from Madagascar, 13°27.52’S 48°33.06’E, in following proportions: 12:4:6:12:28. In specimen from Madagascar, 22°49.08’S 43°30.13’E, protarsomere 1 longer than 4 (12:8). Enlarged claw ( Fig. 92B View FIGURE 92 ) with one bristle situated further distally than proximal prominence. Protarsomere 5 ( Fig. 92B View FIGURE 92 ) with three rows of approximately 44 lamellae (many lamellae much longer than others); apex with approximately 15 lamellae, among which one much longer than others. Tibial spurs 1/1/2.
