J. Longino, 20 June 2014: Alex Wild has some images of the type of C. canescens
, a single minor worker from near Bogota, Colombia (a Lindig collection). From these images, the species looks like C. brettesi
. The surface is densely punctate, on face and dorsal gaster. The cheeks have abundant erect setae. The dorsal gaster has dense yellowish pubescence. The specimen is in pretty poor shape, but it looks like the forms that have an opaque surface sculpture, abundant long setae on all dorsal surfaces, and dense yellowish pubescence beneath the erect pilosity.
