Type: CNCI (Paretas-Martínez et al., 2007b: 476 ).


Length. Female: Unknown. Male: 1.5 mm.

Coloration. Head, scape, mesosoma, metasoma dark brown. Antennae (except scape), legs, mandibles light brown.

Head. Transversely ovate, slightly wider than high in anterior view. Smooth surface, no sculpturing or ridges. Some setae below toruli, scarce setae at frons. Clypeus broadly projected over mandibles, marginal inflection well defined. Epistomal sulcus, clypeo-pleurostomal lines well defined. Toruli wrinkled in inferior area. Malar impression absent (Fig. d).

Antennae. Male . 14-segmented, filiform. Antennomeres completely separate, covered with sparse setae. Abundant rhinaria in all flagellomeres. F1 and F3 not modificated, F2 curved. F1longer than pedicel. F1-F4 subequal in length, following flagellomeres shorter except last one (F12), longer than F1. Proportions of the flagellomeres: 2-2-2-2-1.7-1.7-1.5-1.5-1.5-1.5-1.5-2.4. Pedicel cup-shaped (Fig. e).

Mesosoma. (Fig. b). Abundant setae over pronotum; pronotal carinae very small, only slightly indicated. Mesopleuron smooth, no wrinkles or furrows; mesopleural triangle present .Mesoscutum smooth, shiny, no notauli or other impressions, almost with no setae. Parascutal sulcus ending anteriorly next to tegula. Scutellum evenly rounded with no distinct sculpture, smooth, no foveae or sculpture on apex. Posterodorsal extensions of axillar strips present. Metascutellum not constricted, with one longitudinal medial carina. Propodeum with two narrow longitudinal carinae (Fig. c).

Forewing. 2 mm. long. With dense pilosity; marginal setae present. Veins brown. Radial cell completely open, large; 2r as long as Sc+R1; Rs long, curved, ending just before wing margin; R1 reaching wing margin; 2rm well defined; Cu1a, M+Cu1a, Rs+M, M veins present, slightly visible; Rs+M vein pointing to middle part of basal vein. Undulation present in apical part of posterior margin (Fig. a).

Metasoma. Proximal area with incomplete ring of setae, not present in dorsal area. T2-T3 with subequal dorsomedian lengths, covering most of metasoma.
