Redescription

FEMALE. Body and appendages mostly dark brown but pedicel, F1 and most of legs (except distal tarsomeres) brown; scape subequal in length to F1, F5, and F6 and much longer than pedicel, funicle segments cylindrical ( Fig. 91 View FIGURES 91–94 ), F2 and F3 subequal and the longest, F4 a little shorter than F3 and a little longer than F5; F2 with 1 longitudinal sensillum, F3–F6 each with 2 longitudinal sensilla, clava almost as long as combined length of F5 and F6, with 8 longitudinal sensilla; scutellum without frenal foveae but frenal line evident; forewing ( Fig. 92 View FIGURES 91–94 ) 2.7–2.8 x as long as wide, with 2 or 3 rows of setae behind marginal vein; longest marginal cilia at most 1/5 forewing width; propodeum with submedial carinae about 1/2 of its length ( Fig. 93 View FIGURES 91–94 ); petiole 1.3–1.5 x as long as wide, dorsally without setae; ovipositor about 9/10 length of gaster ( Fig. 94 View FIGURES 91–94 ), slightly exserted beyond apex of gaster (by about 1/12 of its own length); ovipositor length: metatibia length 1.2– 1.3:1.

MALE. Unknown. However, a single male specimen of Boccacciomymar (Boccacciomymar)   in CNCI ( Australia, South Australia, Adelaide, 4–13.II.1990, R. Wharton) most likely belongs to this species, as it lacks the frenal foveae on the scutellum and geographically falls closer to the known range of B. (B.) evanescens   than to that of the next species described below (it has a similar forewing to both species).
