Additional images: worker dorsal view (large, small).
Costa Rica: Atlantic slope to 600m.
Face smooth and shining; juncture of dorsal and posterior faces of propodeum forming sharp right angle; postpetiole in dorsal view relatively thin; eye without distinct convex cornea, reduced to yellow spot below cuticle or absent.
The type specimens were collected at "Port Lim—n."
I know this species from one collection. The location and habitat was 25 year old second growth forest at El Plastico, a 550m elevation site on the Atlantic slope near La Selva. Workers were in a Winkler sample of sifted leaf litter from the forest floor.
