Mexico, Costa Rica, Guyana, Brazil (RJ).
Kempf described this species from three queens: one a U.S. quarantine interception from Mexico, Puebla State, Huachinango, on bamboo poles; one a quarantine interception from Mexico (more detailed locality unknown), on orchids; and one from Brazil, State of Rio de Janeiro, Porto das Caixas. I collected workers of the species in Guyana, Rupununi, Karanambo. They were in a mixed-species collection of general foragers. Phil Ward collected workers in Costa Rica, Prov. Puntarenas, Carara Biological Reserve. It is clearly a rare species, or at least rarely collected, and nothing is known of its biology.
Found most commonly in these habitats: 1 times found in secondgrowth rainforest, 1 times found in old field/pasture, 1 times found in tropical dry forest.
Found most commonly in these microhabitats: 1 times general collecting, 1 times workers on low vegetation.
Collected most commonly using these methods: 2 times search.
Elevations: collected from 30 - 900 meters, 288 meters average
