It is distinguished from all other Doryctinae by the presence of distinct and usually wide propodeal bridge. It differs from Australospathius and Oroceguera by the presence of ocelli and the second tergum with two more or less distinct furrows .
It differs from Stephanospathius by the first flagellar segment of antennae distinctly shorter than second segment, the fore femur on inner side without carinae, the hind coxa of female and male without tooth, the sternaulus present, the acrosternum of first tergum short (less than 0.5 times as long as tergum), the recurrent vein antefurcal, the pronope and pronotal carinae usually absent .
It differs from Schlettereriella by the frons without lateral protuberances, the base of ocellar triangle not less than its lateral sides, the lateral furrows of second metasomal tergum strongly convergent posteriorly and restricted basal subtriangular area (far spaced of second suture), the submedial cell of hind wing large (first abscissa of mediocubital vein subequal to second abscissa) and the radial cell of hind wing with more or less distinct transverse vein .
