Paratypes: idem holotype, 1 male, 1 female.

Diagnose.
Male. Close to L. hantamense but all tibiae (except a dark central maculation on tibiae II and III), tarsi, apical margins of terga and sterna yellowish orange (Fig. 12D). Mid and hind tarsi black in L. mosselinum and

Diagnosis
Male
Close to L. mosselinum but punctation of mesoscutum much denser between parapsidal lines (i =1-1.5d) (sparse in L. mosselinum, I = 3-4d). Legs completely black, tarsi shorter than those of L. mosselinum (all tarsi pale yellow to yellow-orange in L. hantamense and L. tigrinum, fore tarsus yellow in L. mosselinum).
Female
Close to L. mosselinum but metasoma with more extensive red colouration on last tergum (Fig. 16F), base of first tergum often black (metasomal terga black with pale apical margins in L. hantamense and L. tigrinum). Rugae of metapostnotum are finer and shorter than in L. mosselinum, dorso-lateral slopes of propodeum with microtessellate dull surface, not shiny as in L. mosselinum.
