On October 30, 1953, an unidentified female wasp (Fig. 1) was collected from 'Belet Uen, Somaliland' (= Beledweyne, 4°44'N 45°12'E), situated in the valley of the Shebelle River, Hiraan Province, Somalia. It was deposited in the aculeate Hymenoptera collection of the Albany Museum, Grahamstown by D. Greathead prior to 1968. Apart from the words 'Somaliland' and 'Desert Locust Survey' the label is handwritten and the collector's name is not recorded.
