Honduras, Nicaragua.

Biology:

This species occurs in montane wet forest. All collections have been from about 1000-1600 m. Foragers are epigaeic, diurnal or nocturnal, and can be locally abundant at baits. Workers also occur in Winkler samples. One nest was encountered in bare soil of a recent landslide. Workers at a bait led to a simple crack in the soil, with no obvious nest entrance. The main nest chamber with abundant workers and brood was about 15 cm deep.
