Girault (1913a, p. 224), as Signiphora funeralis   (original description).

Dahms (1984, p. 582, 634; 1986, p. 568): notes on type material.

Type material. Holotype female, QM Hy 771 (T4410). Dahms (1984) describes one slide with a coverslip fragment with the holotype of S. funeralis   , complete, along with other chalcidoids (identified as Anagrus armatus   , Abbella subflavella   and the holotype of Pseudogramma fasciatipenne Gir.   ) (label: ‘From windows of empty dwellings, Herberton, N.Q., XII.28.1911, Hy 771 | 3484, 4410, 3484’), and a second slide (not type material) with a fragment containing a male S. funeralis   partially dissected (head, antenna and one leg) (label: ‘ Signiphora funeralis Gir.   | Indooroopilly | window | VII.5.1933)’ and a separate coverslip with a specimen of Chartocerus hebes   (as M. hebes   ). Dahms (1984) states that T4410 was a duplicate QM accession number for the type specimen and had been cancelled. T3484 refers to the specimen of Abbella subflavella   .  

Description. Female. Length 0.74 mm. The holotype has faded to a yellowish tone, but it was originally described as being dark like the other species of Chartocerus   , with metallic tinge on the head and mesoscutum. Fore wing infuscated except for a small basal area, posteriorly. Head with punctations scattered on face and genae. Scape about 4.5× as long as wide, pedicel 2× as long as wide, ring segments in ratios of 6:4:2:1, resembling C. kerrichi   , clava 5× as long as wide. Mesoscutum a little more than 3.5× length of scutellum, with scattered small setae; scutellum with 6 faint setae along posterior margin. Fore wing almost 3× as long as wide, marginal fringe roughly ½ width of the wing. Mesobasitarsus less than ½ length of mesotibia, mesotibial spur about 1/3 of the basitarsus. Mt1 bilobed, the two lobes separated smoothly by a concave curve; propodeal sclerite projecting posteriorly gradually.
