Costa Rica: Atlantic slope, from 50 to 1100m in Cordillera Volcanica Central.
This is a poorly known species that inhabits forest floor leaf litter in rainforest. Conservation International's TEAM project has collected 3 workers from La Selva Biological Station and the adjacent portion of the Barva transect, from Winkler samples of sifted leaf litter from the forest floor. Alate queens have twice been collected at lights at La Selva. Danilo Brenes collected a worker in a sweepnet sample from the 1070m site on the Barva Transect in Braulio Carrillo National Park. E. Rojas, an INBio Parataxonomist, collected an alate queen from a lowland forest site in southern Limon province.
