Scape exceeding vertex in profile (a1) and propodeum (b1) less than 1.75x broader than long--medial length nearly always about equal to width at widest point (ie: length along median carina vs. width at anterior-most point of propodeum, shown by arrows). Flagellum (a1) with 4 or 5 funicular segments.
