Types. Holotype worker, Trial Bay , New South Wales (Australian National Insect Collection, examined).
Comments. A second specimen of this species was recently (November, 2003) collected in Brisbane by Chris Burwell of the Queensland Museum (pers. comm.). He hand collected the specimen at night, apparently from a tree trunk (although the specific collecting details were not recorded). This nocturnal habit, combined with its likely arboreal foraging and nesting, helps explain why these ants are so infrequently encountered. See below for notes on separating this species from the similar P. greavesiHNS.
