Costa Rica: Atlantic slope of Cordillera de Tilar‡n at 800m.
Oculo-mandibular distance about 0.13mm; color light brown; dorsal face of propodeum depressed below promesonotum; petiolar node relatively thick and with dorsum somewhat flat-topped. Measurement data.
I know this species from one collection from Refugio Eladio in the upper Pe–as Blancas Valley. I was excavating into a clay bank at the edge of a large stream and found workers scattered in fissures deep in the bank.
