Diagnosis. Zumatrichia hazelae is placed in the galtena group of Flint (1970) based on the presence of a basodorsal process from the inferior appendages similar to that of Z. kerekeda Olah and Flint and Z. kisgula Olah and Flint. However , unlike these two species, Z. hazelae has the basal portion of the inferior appendage short and ovate, similar to that seen in Z. teribe Harris and Armitage.

Male. Length 2.7–2.9 mm. Head without modification, a broken with enlarged scape bearing large circular process, body and unmodified wings brown in alcohol. Abdominal segment VII annular with serrate posteroventral mesal process. Segment VIII in lateral view truncate posteroventrally, tapering dorsally; in dorsal view narrow, emarginated posterolaterally; ventrally with narrow mesal incision on posterior margin. Segment IX generally square in lateral view, narrowing anteriorly, posterior margin with thin lobe, laterally with elongate setal-bearing process; dorsally emarginate anteriorly and posteriorly, posterior margins sclerotized. Segment X rectanguloid in lateral aspect; in dorsal view square, with posterior margin tapered. Inferior appendages with elongate, thin basodorsal process, subapically with setal-bearing dorsal lobe, main body an enlarged lobe, which in ventral view is deeply incised posteriorly with numerous setae on margin. Penile sheath with subapical point in lateral view; phallus with medial ring-like process, apically enlarged and platelike, internally with elongate dorsal spine and numerous anterobasal spines; in dorsal aspect, a pair of deeply divided mesal spines, two pair of posterior spines, one mesal, one lateral.

Female. Unknown.
