Diagnosis

This species is distinguished by its deep, foveolate notaulus, long, foveolate sternaulus, deeply punctate propodeum, and granulate first median tergite (Figs 5.a – 5.i).

Description

Holotype female; length: 3.7mm (3.5–4.5mm)
Head (Figs 5.b, 5.g) – 23 (23–26) flagellomeres; malar length about 1x eye height; glossa slightly longer than head height (0.87 vs. 0.88mm); anterior face about as wide as high or slightly wider (0.83 vs. 0.80mm); ventral-most anterior edge of face shorter than greatest interantennal space; lightly covered with pale setae.
Mesosoma (Figs 5.c, 5.e, 5.f) - Median mesonotal lobe smooth with very faint, shallow pitting; notauli deep and foveolate (sometimes slightly extending posteriorly after joining medially); scutellar sulcus partitioned into 6 (5–9) sections by longitudinal carinae; metanotum very faintly rugose; propodeum moderately to deeply punctate; sternaulus about 4/5 (4/5 -¾) length of mesopleuron, foveolate and slightly sinuate; metapleuron ½ (½-¾) punctate, somewhat densely covered by pale setae.
Metasoma (Fig. 5.i) - First median tergite slightly longer than wide (0.55 vs. 0.46mm), apical width 2x basal width, sculpture granulate; ovipositor as long as entire body.
Legs (Fig. 5.h) - Mid leg with 2 apical and 2 subapical spines; hind femur length about 3× as long as wide, hind tibia with 5 (5–8) apical spines, entire leg covered with pale setae.
Color - Head - Orange-yellow except black as follows: vertex, spot on dorsomedial face, clypeal pit area, labrum, and mouthparts. Antenna and mandible brown. Mesosoma - Black except orange-yellow as follows: pronotum, edges of notauli, two thick medial longitudinal bands on mesoscutum, posteromedial scutellum, longitudinal band above sternaulus, dorsomedial spot on metapleuron. Metasoma - Terga mostly black with some orange-yellow highlights, ovipositor yellow, ovipositor sheath black. Wings - Translucent to pale yellow-brown, veins brown to light brown. Legs - Yellow, except brown as follows: trochanter, basal patch on hind femur, apical tibia and tarsal segments. Hind coxa mostly black.

Etymology

The species is named after the first author’s mother, Ågot Marga.
