Types Mus. Comp. Zool. Harvard.
Diagnosis A medium-sized, mostly dark brown member of the flavensHNS group whose major has a bicolored head and mesosoma; long, erect hairs on the promesonotum; propodeal spine reduced almost to a denticle; the petiolar node apex narrow; postpetiole seen from above oval; longitudinal carinulae covering almost all of the head, including the central part of the clypeus (but not the occiput, which is smooth); and mesosoma almost entirely smooth and shiny.
Similar in some but not all of these traits to chalcaHNS, lucarisHNS, and ulothrixHNS, differing in additional details of body form, sculpturing, pilosity and color, as variously described above and illustrated.
