Transverse rugae at vertex: present. Sculpture of posterior vertex: coarsely foveate. Sculpture of occipital rim: areolate. Interantennal process: diverging into two carinae that extend laterally along surface of frons. Number of anteriorly projecting setae on anteclypeus: 6. Color of mandibles in female: basal half black; apical half pale brown. Mandibular teeth in female: teeth of equal size, ventral tooth larger, but less than 2x as long as dorsal tooth. Sculpture of ventral gena anterior to genal carina: row of shallow areolae with reduced ridges between cells. Sculpture of ventral gena posterior to genal carina: irregularly rugose. Shape of anteclypeus: striplike, straight to slightly convex.

Mesosoma: Sculpture of dorsal pronotum: areolate. Color of setae on the dorsal mesosoma: white. Sculpture of medial mesoscutum: areolate, areolate, with pronounced longitudinal ridges. Sculpture of lateral mesoscutum: same as medial mesoscutum with a subtle confusion of sculptural elements. Notaulus in female: absent. Parapsidal line: delimited. Sculpture of scutellum: areolate. Median furrow on scutellum: absent. Posterior margin of scutellum: convex. Outer projection of the propodeum: rounded. Posterior margin of propodeal shelf between inner and outer propodeal projections in female: nearly straight, strongly oblique. Sculpture of ventral pronotum: foveate reticulate, becoming smooth at anterolateral corner. Anterior pronotal pit: small. Pronotal cervical sulcus: poorly defined. Mesepimeral sulcus: indicated by dorsoventral line of foveae. Sculpture of femoral depression in female: smooth throughout, transversely striate throughout, finely foveate throughout. Mesopleural carina: weakly defined by fine ridges. Sculpture of ventral mesepisternum: smooth, with smooth area surrounded by small foveae. Pilosity of metapleural triangle in female: present as many short fine white setae. Sculpture of ventral area of metapleuron: foveate reticulate.
