Etymology L granulataHNS, of small grains, roughened on the surface, probably alluding to the foveolate body surface. Diagnosis A member of the small granulataHNS group, characterized by a 4-segmented antennal club, and distinguished within it as follows.
Major: entire body including all the gastral segments, foveolate and opaque; antennal scape very long, exceeding occipital corner; head subrectangular, with a deeply concave occipital border in full-face view; rugoreticulum present between each eye and antennal fossa; postpetiole from above bell-shaped.
Minor: occiput tapered into a neck with a nuchal collar; scape very long, its tip exceeding the occipital corner in full-face view by half its own length.
