Costa Rica: Atlantic and southern Pacific lowlands.
I know this species from four collections: (1) Casa Verde turtle research station in Tortuguero, a stray worker; (2) Sirena, Corcovado National Park, a column crossing a trail, in which one worker carried isopod prey held above its head; (3) Sirena, a stray worker; and (4) Panama Canal Zone, workers collected by W. L. Brown, Jr.
I used to call this species L. punctaticeps, but John Lattke examined the types and concluded that what I called ambigua was true punctaticeps (with ambigua a junior synonym), and this species is probably undescribed.
