Dusona douraguia is distinguishable from other Afrotropical Dusona species by the combination of yellow tegula, dark brown scape and flagellum, yellow front and mid coxae, and red hind coxa. The flagellum is distinctly thicker apically than basally, eyes are moderately indented, and areolet is pointed above (not petiolate) (Rousse & Villemant, 2012).
