Eyes setose. Clypeal margin bilobed. Flagellum with 4 funicular and 2
claval segments, all funicular segments quadrate to broader than long. Stigma
large, subequal postmarginal vein length. Notauli incomplete or ending in axillae
far anterior to scutellar margin; scutellum and mesoscutum with numerous
irregularly distributed setae (but scutellum often with as few as 2 pairs of
distinct setae); dorsellum large and convex: propodeum only slightly longer than dorsellum
medially. Compare with: Dimmockia, Microlycus.

species: D. gelechiae (Miller). The number of scutellar setae is especially
variable, being as few as 2 pairs in a few specimens. The genus remains easily
recognizable using a combination of its other listed characters. There are few Nearctic
Eulophines with a similar body form, but bodily collapse is very frequent in specimens of
this genus, and may render them difficult to identify by beginners. It is similar in
habitus to certain extralimital genera, such as Eulophinusia, but differs in
several characters stated above.
Dimmockia: Mesoscutum with paired, regularly
placed, setae. Propodeum with strong plicae and median carina. Stigma not enlarged.
Similar mainly in clypeal form.
Stigma not enlarged. Clypeus not bilobed. 3 funicular segments in females and some males.
Scutellum never with more than 2 pairs of setae.
