Type-locality: Brazil: Santa Catarina, Nova Teutonia, v.1960 (F. Plaumann). Type-depository: MZSP. Secondary type information: Paratype-material: 24 paratype workers, 4 paratype gynecoids. Paratype-localities: 22 paratype workers, 4 paratype gynecoids Santa Catarina, Nova Teutonia, xi.1957 to vii.1960 (F. Plaumann), 1 paratype worker Santa Catarina, Seara, viii.1958 (F. Plaumann), 1 paratype worker Santa Catarina, Ibicaré, vii.1959 (F. Plaumann). Paratype-depositories: MCZC, MZSP. Type notes: There is some confusion in the numbers of paratype workers. Kempf, 1963a PDF: 192, refers to 28, but the count of worker specimens on the next page (193) adds up to 24. Kugler, 1994: 45, implies 29 workers (i.e. 33 type specimens, minus the 4 gynecoids).
