Metatibia inner spur length/metabasitarsus length: 0.4?.5. Anteromesoscutum: mostly with deep, dense punctures (separated by less than 2.0 ?its maximum diameter). Mesoscutellar disc: with punctures near margins, central part mostly smooth. Number of pits in scutoscutellar sulcus: 9 or 10. Maximum height of mesoscutellum lunules/maximum height of lateral face of mesoscutellum: 0.4?.5. Propodeum areola: completely defined by carinae, including transverse carina extending to spiracle. Propodeum background sculpture: mostly sculptured. Mediotergite 1 length/width at posterior margin: 2.3?2.5. Mediotergite 1 shape: more or less parallel ided. Mediotergite 1 sculpture: mostly sculptured, excavated area centrally with transverse striation inside and/ or a polished knob centrally on posterior margin of mediotergite. Mediotergite 2 width at posterior margin/length: 3.6?.9. Mediotergite 2 sculpture: with some sculpture, mostly near posterior margin. Outer margin of hypopygium: with a medially folded, transparent, semi esclerotized area; with 0? pleats visible. Ovipositor thickness: anterior width at most 2.0 ?posterior width (beyond ovipositor constriction). Ovipositor sheaths length/metatibial length: 0.6?.7. Length of fore wing veins r/2RS: 1.4?.6. Length of fore wing veins 2RS/2M: 1.1?.3. Length of fore wing veins 2M/(RS+M)b: 0.7?.8. Pterostigma length/width: 2.6?.0. Point of insertion of vein r in pterostigma: clearly before half way point length of pterostigma. Angle of vein r with fore wing anterior margin: clearly outwards, inclined towards fore wing apex. Shape of junction of veins r and 2RS in fore wing: distinctly but not strongly angled. Male. As in female. Molecular data. Sequences in BOLD: 49 (32 from Mexico, 17 from ACG), MequitazineMedChemExpress Mequitazine barcode compliant sequences: 49. Biology/ecology. Malaise-trapped. Distribution. Costa Rica, ACG; Mexico, State of Jalisco. Comments. This species is characterized by hypopygium with a median folded, transparent, semi-desclerotized area with 1? pleats visible; ovipositor thin (thinner than width of median flagellomerus), and with basal width <2.0 ?its apical width after constriction; tarsal claws with one basal spine-like seta; mediot.6280.
