Diagnosis

This species is distinguished by its short malar space, smooth notauli, smooth or almost smooth sternaulus, weak propodeal sculpture, and mostly black coloration (Figs 6.a – 6.i).

Description

Holotype female; length: 3.6mm (3.5–4.5mm).
Head (Figs 6.b, 6.g) – 22 (22–27) flagellomeres; malar length shorter than eye height (0.26 vs. 3.6mm); glossa longer than head height (0.80 vs. 0.70mm); anterior face about as wide as high; ventral-most anterior edge of face about same length as greatest interantennal space; lightly covered with pale setae.
Mesosoma (Figs 6.c, 6.e, 6.f) - Median mesonotal lobe smooth; notauli smooth, ending posteriorly where joined medially; scutellar sulcus partitioned into 7 (5–8) sections by longitudinal carinae; metanotum weakly to very weakly pitted; propodeum very weakly rugose, often appearing almost smooth, with a weak anteromedial carina; sternaulus about ¾ length of mesopleuron, smooth to very weakly foveolate; metapleuron mostly smooth with some weak rugosity around the ventral edges, moderately covered with pale setae.
Metasoma (Fig. 6.i) - First median tergite longer than wide (0.45 vs. 0.34mm), apical width slightly less than 2× basal width, sculpture granulate; ovipositor slightly longer than mesosoma + metasoma.
Legs (Fig. 6.h) - Mid leg with 3 (3–5) apical and 2 (2–3) subapical spines; hind femur length about 3x as long as wide, hind tibia with 10 (6–12) apical spines (occasionally 1 subapical spine), entire leg covered with pale setae.
Color - Black except yellow to orange as follows: longitudinal band on malar space, apex of antennal pedicel, base of first flagellomere, labrum, mandible, tegula, legs, 2nd and 3rd metasomal terga and ovipositor, coxa brown-black; wings translucent with brown to light brown veins.

Etymology

From the Latin inertus (lazy), and ursus (bear). The species is named for the first author’s father, whom she thought would be amused by the name.
