Description: Male. Length 4.1 mm. Color: head and mesosoma brown; metasoma dark brown; legs pale yellowish brown; body without greenish brown areas. Head (Figs. 26–28): occipital carina crenulate and irregular, poorly defined; frons lacking swelling, head not appearing browed in dorsal view; eye relatively small, outer orbits well separated from occipital carina so that postgena wider than eye in lateral view; clypeus compressed, rounded, very narrow, smooth, anterior margin without sharp lateral corners; A 1 5.6 times longer than wide; A 2 short, 1.2 times longer than wide; A 3 7.8 times longer than A 2; A 4 and A 5 with small basal carina. Mesosoma (Figs. 26–27): dorsal pronotum with transverse pronotal carina curved around anterior margin of mesoscutum; pronotal humeral carina separated from mesoscutum by distance of about tegula width, shoulders broad, maximum width 0.91 times tegula width; vertical epomial carina weak, most distinct at ventral end; lateral pronotum entirely coriarious-punctate; netrion almost entirely crenulate; admedian lines weak, almost obscured by sculpture; notaulus incomplete, clear and distinct in posterior half, becoming weak and absent anteriorly; mesoscutellum very weakly bilobate; scutellar spines small, bladelike; dorsellum sculptured in posterior half; mesopleural carina complete, weak; mesepisternum below mesopleural carina smooth and shining, with only sparse setae; propodeum not medially excavate, entirely areolate-rugose, medial carina distinct and prominently angulate in lateral view; postmarginal vein 3.0 times longer than marginal vein, mostly indicated by pigmentation, basal tubular section shorter than marginal vein; mid and hind basitarsi laterally compressed, higher than wide (Fig. 24). FIGS. 24–29.Archaeoteleia waipoua, n.sp., holotype male (AMNZ64323). 24, Lateral habitus; 25, dorsal habitus; 26, head and mesosoma, lateral view; 27, head and mesosoma, dorsal view; 28, head, frontal view; 29, metasoma T 3, dorsal view. Scale bars in millimeters. Metasoma (Figs. 24, 25, 29) 3.9 times longer than wide, strongly sculptured, with coarse longitudinal costae particularly on T 1, sculpture becoming less coarse posteriorly; anterior margin of T 1 not raised; anterior lens-shaped region of S 2 strongly angular in profile. Female unknown. Diagnosis: Recognized by the following combination of characters: fore wing with pigment cloud under marginal vein; metasomal tergites with coarse longitudinal costae; clypeus narrow, compressed and without angulate corners; mid and hind basitarsi compressed. Distribution: Known only from a single specimen from the Waipoua forest, northern North Island of New Zealand, where it is found sympatrically with A. chambersi.
