Brazil (AM, PA), Trinidad (type locality), Ecuador, Costa Rica. Costa Rica: Atlantic lowlands, Central Valley.
Posterior face of propodeum concave medially, with prominent lateral carinae; apex of scape nearer eye level than upper head margin; eye indistinct or absent, and without distinct convex cornea.
This species inhabits lowland wet forest on the Atlantic slope. I know it from two collections: at Tortuguero I found a tight column running just under the leaf litter at night; at Hitoy Cerere Biological Reserve I found workers in a rotten log.
