FEMALE—Length 11-12 mm.; black, abdominal terga 2-4 with pearly green, apical, integumental bands; pubescence short, grayish- white or fuscous on dorsum of thorax, rather dense at sides of face and on thorax laterally, short and densely plumose on margin of pronotum, including tubercles; head much broader than long, eyes quite strongly convergent below; clypeus with a quite distinct, median, longitudinal carina; mandibles with a small inner tooth which is nearly apical in position; cheeks subequal to eyes in width; lateral ocelli subequally distant from eyes and each other; antennae subequally distant from eyes and each other; punctures of face above close, deep, distinct and rather fine, becoming slightly more separated below, clypeus becoming somewhat striate toward apical margin; punctures of vertex more widely separated, rather fine, those on cheeks indefinite and obscure; punctures of scutum and scutellum deep and distinct, rather coarse, very close laterally, somewhat separated in central area of scutum, those on scutellum slightly separated and quite variable in size; pleura dull, finely subrugose anteriorly, punctures not evident; dorsal area of propodeum very narrow, no more than half the width of the metanotum, finely striate, lateral and posterior faces dull, densely tessellate and only obscurely punctate; tegulae testaceous-hyaline, somewhat darker on inner side anteriorly; wings lightly infuscated, veins and stigma brownish-piceous; legs piceous, becoming somewhat reddened on apical tarsal segments, spurs dull ferruginous; abdomen somewhat shining basally, becoming rather dull and densely sculptured on the more apical terga, discs of terga 1 and 2 with well separated, fine but distinct punctures, the apical depressed areas minutely punctate along the dark area, the distal margin becoming shining and impunctate, that on 2 pearly green; terga 3 and 4 minutely and very closely punctate, apical bands impunctate.

MALE—Length 9-10 mm.; black, the abdomen with pearly green bands, pubescence cream-colored and rather dense on front of head, more whitish on cheeks and on thorax laterally, very thin above; head somewhat broader than long; eyes strongly convergent below; clypeus with a distinct, median, longitudinal carina visible beneath the pubescence; mandibles simple; cheeks slightly narrower than eyes; lateral ocelli slightly nearer each other than to eyes; antennae slightly nearer eyes than to each other, basal segment of flagellum only slightly longer than broad, the following segments not quite twice as broad as long, piceous above, dull testaceous beneath; puncturation of lower part of face beneath the dense pubescence, very fine and close, becoming more coarse and distinct but still very close just below ocelli, somewhat more sparse between ocelli and eyes, well separated on vertex, very fine and obscure on cheeks, becoming somewhat more widely separated below; scutum and scutellum shining, punctures deep, distinct and quite coarse, close but not crowded between notaulices and tegulae, and close anteriorly, well separated but not sparse over central area of disc; scutellum with a median impression, punctures quite sparse on each side, somewhat finer and closer around the margins; pleura coarsely and deeply punctate, almost rugose; dorsal area of propodeum very narrow, much narrower than metanotum, divided into a series of pits by rather coarse striations, the lateral and posterior faces somewhat shining, deeply and distinctly punctate, coarsely so on posterior face; tegulae yellowish-hyaline, somewhat produced and narrowed apically; wings pale fuliginous, slightly darker apically, veins and stigma more ferruginous; basal segments of legs, including tibiae, largely black, tarsi chiefly yellow, mid femora, tibiae and basitarsi relatively slender and unmodified, hind femora much thickened, lower surface flattened, slightly bowed, hind tibiae dilated apically, being hardly twice as long as the apical width, yellow apically, basitarsi yellow, not more than half the width of the tibiae, sides nearly parallel, length somewhat less than that of tibiae; basal abdominal tergum shining, coarsely and deeply punctate, punctures well separated but not sparse, apical impressed area very finely punctate adjacent to disc, apical margins smooth and impunctate, tergum 2 somewhat more finely but very distinctly punctate, punctures rather sparse, apical impressed area largely impunctate, with a pearly green apical band, terga 3-5 with similar apical bands, the discs successively more finely and closely punctate, densely crowded on the more apical terga, these with suberect, short, thin, black pubescence, the more apical hairs quite elongate and overlying, to some degree, the pearly bands, the more basal terga largely pale pubescent; abdominal sterna 1-3 relatively simple and unmodified, 4 with a deep, median groove, bare and shining on each side, the surface flattened, with fine, sparse and variable punctures; sterna 5-8 retracted and largely hidden beneath the 4th, 5 with a pair of densely longsetose, apical areas as shown (fig. 124), sterna 6-8 as shown; gonostyli of armature broadly expanded and much flattened apically, with a recurved tip, and with a ventral spatulate process closely applied to the undersurface, other characters as shown (fig. 120).
