The Crabronini are a diverse group of wasps characterised by a large, cuboidal head, a relatively stout thorax and stout legs. Members of the more generalised, presumably basal genera Entomognathus, Encopognathus, Anacrabro and Entomocrabro have a mandible which is notched externoventrally and simple apically, a palpal formula of 6-4, and females have a flat, triangular plate on the pygidium. In more derived genera, the mandible lacks the externoventral notch and is often toothed apically (Bohart & Menke 1976).

Characters (from Bohart & Menke 1976): Small to medium large forms, 2 to 14 mm long; eyes naked or rarely hairy, inner orbits nearly always converging below, often strongly so; eye facets usually enlarging ventrad; frons often with a definite scapal basin which may be margined laterally, dorsally, or both; ocellar triangle various, occipital carina complete or incomplete; antennal sockets usually close to each other and to inner orbits; clypeus usually transverse; male antenna with 12 or 13 articles, female with 12; scape often with one or two carinae; male flagellum sometimes broadened and, or fringed beneath; palpal formula 6-4, 6-3 or 5-3; mandible apex simple or bidentate, rarely tridentate, inner margin simple or dentate, inner base sometimes with a large tooth or prog; mandible socket often closed; metanotum and propodeum without mucro; metanotum usually without squamae; submarginal cell separated by vein from discoidal cell I; gaster often pedunculate; male pygidial
plate present or absent; female pygidial plate triangular and flat or narrowed and guttered.
