Areolet of fore wing present, large or small, quadrangular or triangular; vannal lobe with margin usually convex and setose but sometimes varying to straight and setose and exceptionally concave and without setae. Side of pronotum always with ventral groove, rarely with dorsal groove. Propodeum usually rugose but occasionally smooth; median longitudinal carina strong and complete.
First tergite of metasoma bearing a sharp median longitudinal groove through most of its length; but varying from short and expanded apically to strongly narrowed, lorate. Second tergite with well- or ill-defined median field. Third tergite smooth, but strongly rugose when the second one is similarly sculptured. Hind coxa large, inner hind tibial spurs usually long.
Hypopygium short and inflexible. Ovipositor sheaths short, usually with dense setae near the apex; sheaths of most species with a few modified strong setae.
