Types Mus. Comp. Zool. Harvard.
Diagnosis Nearly identical to bilimekiHNS and floridanaHNS (q.v.). Differs from both in the mostly smooth and feebly shiny pronotum of the minor, and possibly the weakly bilobous outline of the pronotum in dorsal-oblique view; and from bilimekiHNS in addition by the complete or near absence of shagreening from the first gastral tergite. There also may be small differences in the major in pilosity (as illustrated) and Color (described below).
Measurements (mm) Lectotype major: HW 0.90, HL 0.96, SL 0.52, EL 0.12, PW 0.44. Paralectotype minor: HW 0.44, HL 0.48, SL 0.46, EL 0.10, PW 0.26.
Color Major: body dark yellow, with slight reddish overtones (hence faintly "orange"), appendages clear yellow. Minor: concolorous yellow.
