You may include just three characters in the interactive key of Cerretti for Exoristinae (1. eye pubescent, 2. postpronotal setae in a triangle and 3. depression on basal syntergite extending on the proximal half) and you will get only three genera: Istocheta, Lecanipa and Ptesiomyia. The first two are Blondeliini with obtuse angle of medial vein, therefore the third one is the most suitable identificaion.
