Entedononecremnus Girault, 1915 comparative info return to: prev home
Eyes not setose. Transverse frontal groove not indicated, but presumably should
be located about 1 ocellar diameter below the median ocellus; scrobal depressions not
present as sulci, about as broad as scape, uniting near center of face, the longitudinal
depression extending to end near median ocellus. Clypeus delimited by dorsal suture.
Flagellum with 3 claval segments and 3 preclaval segments; 3rd flagellomere quadrate to
longer than broad, much longer than 1st and 2nd flagellomeres. Mesosoma with raised
reticulate sculpture; pronotal collar not formed; mesoscutal midlobe with several
irregularly placed setae; about half dorsal axillar surface advanced beyond
scutellar margin; scutellum with many dorsal setae (unpaired, or in 3 or
more pairs), about as long as mesoscutum; prepectus not fused with mesopleuron. Submarginal
vein with 3-5 dorsal setae; speculum present. Postmarginal vein as long as or
shorter than stigmal vein; stigma petiolate or not; marginal vein slightly longer than
costal cell; submarginal vein with 3-5 setae. Propodeum with strong
sculpture, including a very distinct paraspiracular fovea that curves posteriad to unite
with the supracoxal flange; median carina meeting nuchal carina posteriorly; callus with
sharp posterior corners (2 pairs: dorsal and ventral). Gaster with metallic luster; gt1
usually smooth, shiny, but with carinate adpetiolar margin, brightly
metallic, while other tergites sculpted and more dull; hypopygium <0.25x gastral
length; ovipositor sheaths greatly enlarged. Mesotibial spur short, usually not pectinate.
