smooth and bare, with pilosity along hind margin.
However, inspection of the columns in the matrix showed that only head width and metapleuron
length exhibited significant correlations (albeit weakly) with any other traits after size adjustment.
smooth, bare in most of anterior half, the rest with white pilosity which is dense in less than posterior half.
For mesopleuron, metapleuron
and ventral abdominal laterotergites II and III see under "Pterothorax--lateral parts." Ventral pilosity of first tarsal segment strikingly dense.
Mesosoma mostly orange, mesoscutum with two ferruginous spots (submedial one bigger than posterior one); propleuron, mesopleuron and metapleuron
The characters distinguishing the new species are the following: head and mesosoma partly black or brown; antennal segments 4-5 not broader than other segments; posterior ocelli not touching occipital carina; pronotum partly black, humped, with distinct posterior collar; scutum punctate, unsculptured among punctures; metapleuron
without shiny and unsculptured area; dorsal surface of propodeum more than twice as long as posterior surface; segment 1 of protarsus slightly longer than segment 4.
warana, both with orange head, by: scapus, pedicellus, mesopleuron and metapleuron
brown to blackish; prominent anterior median knob on first tergite of metasoma.
Ventral surface yellowish matte with darker and rougher punctures than dorsal side; evaporatorium on meso and metapleuron
Thorax black; posterior margin of katepimeron, metapleuron
yellow, a small median spot on posterior margin of mesoscutellum light brown.
Notauli indistinct, metanotum smooth, propodeum smooth with a longitudinal carina diverging distally, pronotum with longitudinal carina, mesopleuron and metapleuron
smooth and shiny.
This group is characterised by the metapleuron
densely punctate all over, straight ovipositor and uniformly hyaline fore wing.
Thoracic pleura and sterna: Each side of proepisterna provided anteriorly with a thick collarlike tumescent ridge delimited by deep transverse furrow, posterior margin of mesopleurite roundedly projecting posteriad just ventrad of humeri; mesopleuron without peculiarities; metapleuron
with a well-developed scent gland ostiole situated slightly mediad to middle of metapleuron
, associated with a long, evenly curved peritreme of various length (Fig.
