/width: 3.2?.3. 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: 5 or 6. Maximum height of mesoscutellum lunules/maximum height of lateral face of mesoscutellum: 0.4?.5.

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: 3.6?.9. Mediotergite 2 sculpture: with some sculpture, mostly near posterior margin. Outer margin of hypopygium: with a wide, medially folded, transparent, semi esclerotized area; usually with 4 or more pleats. Ovipositor thickness: about same width throughout its length (?). Ovipositor sheaths length/ metatibial length: 0.8?.9. Length of fore wing veins r/2RS: 1.0 or less. Length of fore wing veins 2RS/2M: 1.4?.6. Length of fore wing veins 2M/(RS+M)b: 1.1?.3. Pterostigma length/width: 3.1?.5. 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: strongly angulated, sometimes with a knob. Male.
