Eyes setose. Transverse frontal groove straight, located near median ocellus;
scrobal grooves uniting before reaching transverse groove. Malar sulcus complete, not
curving posteriad. Vertex with transverse groove between median and lateral ocelli;
occiput with longitudinal and transverse grooves. Clypeus defined dorsally by a
semicircular sulcus. Flagellum presumably always 6-segmented, including 2 (possibly
sometimes 1) tiny anelli, 1 preclaval segment that is longer than broad, as broad as club,
and a 3-segmented club that is much longer than the rest of the flagellum; club with
apical spicule. Pronotal collar not formed; mesoscutal midlobe with 1 pair of setae; axillae
advanced entirely anteriad of scutellar margin, but weakly or not
separated from mesoscutum medially, when apparent, the dorsal surface of the
axilla is about 2x longer than broad; scutellum transverse, shroter than mesoscutum, with
1 pair of setae. Postmarginal vein shorter than stigmal vein, stigma petioate; submarginal
vein with 2 dorsal setae; speculum present. Propodeum extremely short. Petiole transverse.
Base of gt1 with transverse membranous region. Compare with: Euderomphale.
