H. ater, cinereo-pubeseens; abdomine nitido, segmentis intermediis basi fascia albis.

Female. Length 4 1/2 lines. Black: the clypeus produced, the face covered with cinereous pubescence. Thorax closely punctured above; the mesothorax thinly covered with short erect pale pubescence; the postscutellum with a dense short downy pubescence; the metathorax truncated, and having some irregular coarse striae at the base above; the wings hyaline and iridescent, the nervures and tegulae testaceous; the legs with a short yellowish-white downy pubescence. Abdomen delicately punctured, the basal margin of the second and two following segments with a fascia of short yellowish-white pubescence, the apical segment covered with similar pubescence.
