Head: Face pruinose, facial swelling indistinct with only the lower facial margin slightly protruding; mystax consisting of 4–15 macrosetae generally arranged in a single row on lower facial margin; occiput pruinose and covered with erect setae. Antennae: scape short, with setae ventrally; pedicel longer than scape, with setae dorsally and ventrally; postpedicel cylindrical, longer than scape and pedicel combined; stylus with two elements (narrow, cylindrical, long proximal segment and apical 'seta-like' sensory element), apical ‘seta-like’ sensory element hyaline or brown; stylus and postpedicel about equal length. Thorax: Pronotum and postpronotum entirely pruinose; prosternum fused laterally to proepisternum; scutum either entirely covered with pruinosity or predominantly apruinose (pruinosity restricted to anterior, lateral, and posterior margins), short or long setae scattered on surface; macrosetae: 1 notopleural seta, 1 supra-alar seta, and sometimes 1 postalar seta; posterior scutum with erect setae; scutellum with long discal scutellar and scutellar setae; katatergite with long erect setae; episterna and epimera covered with dense pruinosity, anepisternum and anepimeron different colour than katepisternum and katepimeron, long more or less erect setae on anepisternum, katepisternum, and katepimeron; postmetacoxal area sclerotised with suture medially. Legs: generally dark brown to black; coxa pruinose; prothoracic and mesothoracic femora with erect setae dorsally and anteriorly, metathoracic femora with erect setae on all surfaces, metathoracic femora expanded, clubbed; tibiae generally coloured evenly and with erect setae, sometimes with dorsal pale yellow stripe and short setae only, mesothoracic tibiae with three long setae on postero-ventral surface distally, metathoracic tibiae generally with erect setae on all surfaces sometimes only proximally, expanded and broadest medially, metathoracic tibiae with at least two long ventrad angled setae on ventral surface; first tarsomere about same length as second and third combined, tarsomeres with stout black setae ventrally except for fourth and fifth; claw black, long, pointed; empodium from about half length of claw to nearly length of a claw. Wings: length: 4.5–15.0 mm; microtrichia generally on anterior and posterior margin and distally, entirely hyaline or opaque with pattern of brown and white coloured spots/stripes, veins brown; pterostigma distinct brown; cell cup closed and stalked, all other marginal cells open, cell d terminating in M2 and M3 with M1 situated proximally at about half length of cell d, R2+3 distally angled anteriorly; halter light brown to brown. Abdomen: Abdominal tergites entirely brown and grey pruinose, abdominal tergite 2 in proximal half with erect setae laterally, remaining abdominal tergites with short setae; abdominal sternite pruinose and setose, abdominal sternite 2 pruinose or apruinose in proximal half. Male terminalia: Surstylus with rounded distal tip, ventral lobe well-developed, surstylus setose; hypandrium triangular-shaped (ventral view), lateral margin expanded to form protruding carinae distally; gonocoxite fused to hypandrium with visible suture, gonocoxite fused to proximal epandrium, gonostyli and lateral processes of gonostyli of equal size, situated distally on gonocoxite; aedeagus only seen in dorsal view as a block between the aedeagal apodeme and dorsal aedeagal sheath; dorsal aedeagal sheath comprised of single pointed tube; ventral aedeagal sheath plate-like, triangular; lateral apodeme cylindrical; aedeagal apodeme rounded, varying diameter. Female terminalia: Unspecialised ovipositor; S8 invaginated medio-distally with short macrosetae; furca (S9) U-shaped, sclerotised throughout; bursa copulatrix cylindrical, expanded and angled 180° medially; three spermathecae present with median spermatheca larger than lateral ones, spermathecal ducts tubular with a distinct smoothly angled banana-shaped part medially; spermathecal reservoirs sac-shaped, longer than wide, broadest proximally.
