Major: very close to the lectotype major of guilelmimuelleriHNS (q.v.), but the minor is very distinct, as follows: propodeal spines absent, replaced by right-angular junctions between the basal and posterior propodeal faces; humerus smoothly rounded in dorsal-oblique view; head and body almost completely smooth and shiny, with sculpturing on head comprising only short carinulae anterior to the level of the eyes.
