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: with punctures near Varlitinib manufacturer margins, central part mostly smooth. 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: slightly wid-Jose L. Fernandez-Triana et al. / ZooKeys 383: 1?65 (2014)ening from anterior margin to 0.7?.8 mediotergite length (where maximum width is reached), then narrowing towards posterior margin. 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: 2.8?.1. 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: 1.0?.1. 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: clearly beyond half way point length of pterostigma. Angle of vein r with fore wing anterior margin: clearly outwards, inclined towards fore wing apex. Shape of junction of veins r and 2RS in fore wing: distinctly but not strongly angled. Male. Unknown. Molecular data. Sequences in BOLD: 13, barcode compliant sequences: 13. Biology/ecology.
