Description

Female. Body length 718–1133 (seven specimens in total, only four described and named to species). Head. Normal in shape, wider than long and about ¾ as high as wide. Face slightly convex in lateral view; vertex flat and slightly sloping anteriorly, forming a moderately sharp angle with occiput; back of head slightly concave. Eye higher than wide, about 2/3 head height; malar space about 1/3 eye height. Antenna. Funicle 6-segmented, with each funicle segment longer than wide; clava 3-segmented with the claval sutures perpendicular to claval length. Wings. Fore wing wide, symmetrical, with evenly rounded apex (shape resembling that of the extant genus Eustochus); marginal fringe shorter than fore wing width. Venation about 0.4× fore wing length, with long marginal vein and short but distinct stigmal vein. Hind wing narrow; marginal fringe much longer than wing width. Mesosoma. Shorter than gaster. Pronotum length at most about half length of mesoscutum. Mesoscutum length subequal to scutellum. Scutellum with frenum apparently entire, not divided longitudinally. Metanotum much shorter than scutellum. Metasoma. Constricted at base, probably with short petiole. Gastral terga similar in length. Ovipositor moderately short, probably arising near midpoint of gaster and its apex not or barely exserted beyond gastral apex.
