Liragathis baonai Sharkey, sp. n.
Lira is Latin for ridge, as in the ridge made by a plow in the earth; it is a reference to the median longitudinal ridge on the first metasomal median tergite. Feminine.
Antennal sockets not margined with carinae. Interantennal space with a flat triangular elevation that narrows to a short ridge posteriorly approaching the median ocellus. Temple rounded in dorsal view. Third labial palpomere, about 1/2 length of apical palpomere. Notauli depressed and partly or entirely pitted. Scutellar triangle smooth or rugose. Dorsal margin of hind coxal cavities situated above ventral-most margin of metasomal foramen. Pegs on anterior surface of fore tibia absent. Hind trochantellus lacking longitudinal carinae. Second submarginal cell of fore wing varying from minute, cell about the same diameter as wing veins, to petiolate with petiole longer than cell diameter. First median tergite mostly with irregular striae, lateral and median carinae strong. Second median tergite wider than long. Second median tergite from mostly smooth with weak striae restricted to transverse depression, to almost completely striate; in the two species the mostly smooth anteromedial area has transverse or semicircular rugosities, much weaker but otherwise similar to those of Cymagathis.
