Overview
FEMALE—Length 7mm.; entirely black; face much longer than distance between eyes above; eyes very slightly convergent below; lateral ocelli subequally distant from eyes, margin of vertex and each other; clypeus less than half as long as its greatest breadth, median portion of apical margin straight, this area bordered on each side by a distinct and more or less erect tubercle; labrum with a median, apical, more or less erect, acute tubercle; mandibles tri-dentate, middle tooth approximate to the apical tooth, outer margin with a slight, median angle where the lower mandibular carinae unite; cheeks somewhat broader than eyes; wings hyaline basally becoming lightly infuscated apically, stigma brownish, veins more testaceous; tegulae brownish, somewhat shining, very minutely and obscurely punctate; legs entirely dark, spurs pale yellowish; pubescence short, thin, entirely pale, somewhat more dense on clypeus and along inner orbits, on cheeks below and thorax laterally and posteriorly, elsewhere exceedingly sparse, short and thin; abdominal terga 1-4 with white apical fasciae evident laterally on the more basal plates, entire on 3 and 4; discal pubescence very short, thin, sparse, barely visible except on the more apical terga; scopa pale yellowish; punctures very coarse, deep and distinct, close in general, coarsely crowded on face just below ocelli, becoming very fine and densely crowded on clypeus, coarse and close on cheeks, scutum, and over much of pleura, being somewhat more distinctly separated on mesopleura posteriorly and on scutellum; punctures very coarse and quite close on abdominal terga laterally and toward basal margin medially, 4-6 more uniformly, coarsely and very closely punctate, 6 almost rugoso-punctate.

MALE—Length 7 mm.; entirely black; face considerably longer than distance between eyes above; eyes very slightly convergent below; lateral ocelli subequally distant from eyes and each other, somewhat more distant from margin of vertex; clypeus only slightly broader than its median length, somewhat swollen medially, apical margin nearly straight, slightly produced at each side; labrum with a low, median, basal protuberance; mandibles hi- dentate; cheeks somewhat narrower than eyes; wings hyaline basally, becoming rather deeply infuscated apically and in marginal cell, veins and stigma piceous; tegulae smooth and shining, nearly black; legs entirely black, spurs pale yellowish; basal abdominal sternum with a robust, median protuberance, apical margin broadly produced and truncate; sternum 2 fully exposed, somewhat swollen medially on each side, apical margin rather broadly out- curved, smooth and shining; sternum 3 largely hidden, and sterna 4-8 entirely retracted, form as shown (fig. 15); genital armature as shown; pubescence short, thin, entirely pale, somewhat more copious on lower inner orbits and clypeus, quite dense and elongate on cheeks below, and with a rather distinct, erect, whitish fringe around lateral and posterior margins of scutum and scutellum; abdominal terga 2-4 with very narrow but entire, whitish, apical fasciae, tergum 1 fasciate toward the sides; discal pubescence of terga very short, thin and sparse, apparently entirely pale; punctures coarse, close and deep in general, much finer but densely crowded below antennae and on clypeus, rather coarse on lateral faces of propodeum, posterior face shining, with scattered, irregular and much finer punctures; punctures very coarse and close over most of abdominal terga, somewhat finer and more distinctly separated on median area of 2 and 3, 4 and 5 with densely crowded punctures, 5 becoming more rugose apically, 6 somewhat shining, punctures distinctly but not widely separated; sternum 2 dull, coarsely rugoso-punctate at extreme sides but becoming very finely so medially.
