Head. Scape less than two times longer than maximally wide. Apical lobe of scape absent, margin of scape and pedicel without dense cluster of setae. Scape shorter than first flagellomere. First flagellar segment surface regularly smooth or finely sculptured. Maxillary palpi six-segmented, labial palpi four-segmented, third labial palp segment as long as or longer than second. Malar suture absent. Frons without lateral protuberances, raised ridge between antennae absent. Occipital carina present, at least laterally. Vertex not striate, smooth.
Mesosoma. Propleuron only smoothly rounded. Pronotum dorsally without modifications (or convex lobe). Notauli complete or at least partly present (smooth or sculptured). Prescutellar depression (scutellar sulcus) long and narrow or of medium length. Prepectal carina present. Sternaulus (precoxal sulcus) absent. Propodeal bridge between abdominal and coxal foramina absent. Propodeum almost entirely smooth (visible in the carinated areola). Propodeal carinated areas present at least basally, or completely absent. Propodeum without median process.
Wings. Wings present. Radial (marginal) cell of fore wing distally closed. Second radiomedial vein (r-m) of fore wing present. First radiomedial vein (2-SR) of fore wing present, leading the first and second submarginal cells of fore wing separated. Recurrent vein (m-cu) of fore wing interstitial or antefurcal (arising basad or directly in line with 2RS, (RS+M)b present then second submarginal cell petiolate horizontally). Nervellus (cu-a) of fore wing present, antefurcal. Parallel vein (CU1a) relative to cubital vein (2-CU1) of fore wing not interstitial, arising behind middle of distal vein of brachial cell (short space between the curved part and the level of 2–1A vein), brachial (1st subdiscal) cell of fore wing distally closed. Fore wing of male without sclerotized enlargement, including veins 1-m and 1-SR + m. Hind wing with four to eight distal hamuli. Hind wing without transverse vein (r) of radial cell. Hind wing with the recurrent vein (m-cu), recurrent vein (m-cu) not curved towards apex of wing. Hind wing with the nervellus (cu-a) vein. Hind wing with a small or medium sized submedial (subbasal) cell, the first abscissa of M + CU 0.2–1.0 times as long as second abscissa (1-M). Medial (basal) cell of hind wing closed. Fore wing more or less infuscate (sometimes with pale spots inside).
Legs. Fore tibial spines present, usually few and forming a single row. Subapical teeth on fore and middle femora ventrally absent. Hind coxa dorsally without teeth. Hind femora not swollen (at least 3x longer than wide). Dorsal spines of hind tibia absent. Hind femur without teeth on ventral side. Basoventral tooth of hind coxa present (sometimes very small).
Metasoma. Petiole from 1 times to 1.5 times longer than apical width, apical width less than or equal to 1.5 times (or subequal to) basal width. Dorsope of first metasomal tergite present and more or less distinct. Acrosternite of first metasomal tergite short, nearly 0.2–0.25 as long as tergite, not fused with ventral margins of tergite, petiole absent. First and second tergites not fused. Laterotergites separated from each other for at least second and third tergites, separated at all tergites. Second tergite without apical lenticulate area. Second tergite basal area enclosed by carinae or grooves present (sometimes shallow grooves), basal area of second tergite connected with second suture, basal area of second tergite posteriorly wide, width of its apical part subequal to or slightly less than basal width. Second metasomal suture present, shape of second metasomal suture with more or less distinct lateral angulations. Third tergite with a distinct transverse narrow depression (furrow) usually between its anterior third and the middle(sometimes meeting laterally second metasomal suture and enclosing a lenticular area). Fifth or sixth metasomal tergites not enlarged, not covering succeeding tergites and entirely smooth.
Female genitalia. Ovipositor nodus double (or more as Cryptodoryctes), with both nodus well developed (from ).
