St are pale). Antenna length/body length: antenna about as long as body (head to apex of metasoma); if slightly shorter, at least extending beyond anterior 0.7 metasoma length. Body in lateral view: not distinctly flattened dorso entrally. Body length (head to apex of metasoma): 2.9?.0 mm, 3.1?.2 mm, rarely 3.3?.4 mm. Fore wing length: 3.3?.4 mm, rarely 3.1?3.2 mm. Ocular cellar line/posterior ocellus diameter: 2.3?.5. Interocellar distance/posterior ocellus diameter: 1.7?.9. Antennal flagellomerus 2 length/width: 2.9?.1. Antennal flagellomerus 14 length/width: 1.7?.9. Length of flagellomerus 2/length of flagellomerus 14: 2.0?.2. Tarsal claws: with single basal spine ike seta. Metafemur length/width: 3.0?.1. Metatibia inner spur length/metabasitarsus length: 0.4?.5. Anteromesoscutum: mostly with deep, dense punctures (separated by less than 2.0 ?its maximum diameter). Mesoscutellar disc: mostly punctured. Number of pits in scutoscutellar sulcus: 7 or 8. Maximum height of mesoscutellum lunules/maximum height of lateral face of mesoscutellum: 0.4?.5. Propodeum areola: completely defined by carinae, including transverse carina extending to spiracle. Propodeum background sculpture: mostly sculptured. Mediotergite 1 length/ width at posterior margin: 2.0?.2. Mediotergite 1 shape: mostly parallel ided for 0.5?.7 of its length, then narrowing posteriorly so mediotergite anterior width >1.1 ?posterior width. Mediotergite 1 sculpture: mostly sculptured, excavated area centrally with transverse striation inside and/or a polished knob centrally on posterior margin of mediotergite. Mediotergite 2 width at posterior margin/length: 3.2?.5. Mediotergite 2 sculpture: mostly smooth. Outer margin of hypopygium: with a wide, medially folded, transparent, semi esclerotized area; usually with 4 or more pleats. Ovipositor thickness: anterior width at most 2.0 ?posterior width (beyond ovipositor constriction). Ovipositor sheaths length/metatibial length: 1.2?1.3. Length of fore wing veins r/2RS: 1.7?.9. Length of fore wing veins 2RS/2M: 1.1?.3. Length of fore wing veins 2M/(RS+M)b: 0.7?.8. Pterostigma length/ width: 3.6 or more. Point of insertion of vein r in pterostigma: about half way point length of pterostigma. Angle of vein r with fore wing anterior margin: more or less perpendicular to fore wing margin. Shape of junction of veins r and 2RS in fore wing: distinctly but not strongly angled. Male. As in female, with narrower mediotergite 1. Molecular data.
