General: Body length of female: 3.1-4.1 mm (n=15). Body length of male: 3.6-3.8 mm (n=6). Body color: black.
Antenna: Color of antennae in female: A1–A6 yellow; A7–A12 dark brown to black. Color of antennae in male: A1–A2 brown; A3–A12 variably becoming yellow apically, antennomeres often yellow ventrally. Seta on pedicel of antenna in female: present, reaching past apex of A3.
Head: Color of setae on the head: yellow. Sculpture of dorsal frons between frontal carina and median ocellus: coarsely foveate, foveate with contiguous cells. Preocellar pit in females: absent. Transverse rugae at vertex: present. Sculpture of posterior vertex: coarsely foveate. Sculpture of occipital rim: coarsely foveate, cells often contiguous. Interantennal process: simple. Number of anteriorly projecting setae on anteclypeus: 6. Color of mandibles in male: yellow throughout, teeth brown. Color of mandibles in female: yellow throughout with teeth brown. Mandibular teeth in female: dorsal tooth larger. Sculpture of ventral gena anterior to genal carina: row of contiguous punctures, row of well separated punctures. Sculpture of ventral gena posterior to genal carina: mostly smooth, with sparse large punctures, coarsely and irregularly punctate. Shape of anteclypeus: striplike, straight to slightly convex.
Legs: Color of legs: entirely yellow.
Mesosoma: Sculpture of dorsal pronotum: areolate with expanded ridges. Color of setae on the dorsal mesosoma: yellow. Sculpture of medial mesoscutum: coarsely foveate. Sculpture of lateral mesoscutum: with an elevated patch of smoother sculpture, bounded by mesoscutal humeral sulcus laterally, extending to scutoscutellar sulcus posteriorly. Notaulus in female: present. Parapsidal line: delimited. Sculpture of scutellum: coarsely foveate. Median furrow on scutellum: absent. Posterior margin of scutellum: convex. Outer projection of the propodeum: present as distinct corner or posteriorly projecting spine. Posterior margin of propodeal shelf between inner and outer propodeal projections in female: concave. Posterior margin of propodeal shelf between inner and outer propodeal projections in male: concave. Sculpture of ventral pronotum: foveate reticulate, becoming smooth at anterolateral corner. Anterior pronotal pit: large. Pronotal cervical sulcus: well defined by contiguous punctures. Mesepimeral sulcus: indicated by dorsoventral line of foveae. Sculpture of femoral depression in female: smooth throughout. Sculpture of femoral depression in male: smooth medially, bounded by small foveae. Mesopleural carina: indicated by one or two rows of punctures. Sculpture of ventral mesepisternum: with smooth area surrounded by small foveae. Pilosity of metapleural triangle in female: glabrous or with at most 3 small setae. Pilosity of metapleural triangle in male: absent. Sculpture of ventral area of metapleuron: smooth.
Metasoma: Submarginal ridge on T1: absent. Sublateral tergal carina on T2: percurrent. Sculpture of T2–T3: longitudinally striate. Sculpture of T4: longitudinally striate. Sculpure of T5: longitudinally strigose. Shape of subapical T6 in female in dorsal view: semicircular, width along anterior margin twice the length. Apex of T7 in male: slightly convex. Longitudinal medial keel on S1: absent. Sculpture of medial S2 in female: unknown. Sculpture of medial S3 in female: longitudinally strigose, effaced to smooth. Sculpture of medial S4 in female: longitudinally strigose, effaced to smooth. Sculpture of medial S5 in female: longitudinally strigose, effaced to smooth. Sculpture of lateral S3 in female: longitudinally strigose. Sculpture of lateral S4 in female: longitudinally strigose. Sculpture of lateral S5 in female: longitudinally strigose. Sculpture of marginal depression of S2 in female: smooth. Sculpture of marginal depression of S3 in female: smooth. Sculpture of marginal depression of S4 in female: mostly smooth with scattered punctures or shallow rugulae, rugulose. Sculpture of marginal depression of S5 in female: rugulose. Apical spine on S6 in female: not extending beyond apex of T6 and not visible in dorsal view. Sculpture of medial S2 in male: longitudinally strigose. Sculpture of medial S3 in male: smooth, weakly longitudinally strigose. Sculpture of lateral S3 in male: longitudinally strigose. Sculpture of lateral S4 in male: longitudinally strigose. Sculpture of medial S5 in male: smooth, longitudinally strigose. Sculpture of lateral S5 in male: longitudinally strigose.
