Diagnosis

This is the largest and most distinctive species in the Lingualongis species-group. It is easily distinguished by its very long malar space, foveolate sternaulus, rugose propodeum, and its smooth or almost smooth first metasomal tergite (Figs 4.a – 4.i). It is also one of the few members of the group that is all or almost all orange.

Description

Holotype female; length: 7.5mm (4.7–7.5mm).
Head (Figs 4.b, 4.g) – 33 (28–33) flagellomeres; malar length about 1.1× eye height; glossa as long as head height (3.3 vs. 3.3mm); anterior face about as wide as high; ventral-most anterior edge of face shorter than greatest interantennal space; lightly covered with pale setae.
Mesosoma (Figs 4.c, 4.e, 4.f) - Median mesonotal lobe smooth except for faint beginnings of a carina anteromedially; notauli smooth, slightly extended posteriorly after joining medially; scutellar sulcus partitioned into 7 sections by longitudinal carinae; metanotum almost smooth, very faintly rugose; propodeum distinctly rugose, becoming almost areolate rugose posteromedially; sternaulus about ¾ length of mesopleuron, foveolate and slightly sinuate; metapleuron with some carinae, but mostly smooth, and lightly to densely covered with pale setae.
Metasoma (Fig. 4.i) - First median tergite slightly longer than wide (1.2mm vs. 0.96mm), apical width 2× basal width, sculpture smooth with some very faint beginnings of rugosity basally; ovipositor as long as mesosoma + metasoma.
Legs (Fig. 4.h) - Mid leg with 2 apical spines; hind femur length about 3.5× its width at widest point, hind tibia with 7 (7–10) apical spines, entire leg covered with pale setae.
Color - Orange-yellow except black as follows: median vertex of head, median mesonotal lobe apicomedially, posterolateral edges of mesoscutum, most of metanotum, apicomedial part (to all) of propodeum, 1st metasomal tergite basomedially, apical most part of last tergite, labrum and mouthparts, mesosternum and ovipositor sheath; antenna and wings brown, wing veins slightly darker brown.

Etymology

From the Latin, lingua (tongue), and longis (long). The name refers to the long mouthparts.
