Costa Rica: Atlantic slope, from sea level to 900m elevation.
This species occurs in Atlantic slope wet forest. At Tortuguero I found a colony inside a nasutiform termite nest. Workers were scattered throughout, but separate from the areas inhabited by termites. Brood occurred in spatially separated small batches of 10-20 larvae. In the Pe–as Blancas Valley east of Monteverde, at 800m and 900m elevation, I twice observed nocturnal columns on the ground. During the ALAS expeditions on the Barva Transect, workers were obtained in a Winkler sample from the 500m site and a sweepnet sample from the 300m site.
Found most commonly in these habitats: 3 times found in mature wet forest, 2 times found in oak cloud forest, 4 times found in montane wet forest, 2 times found in wet forest, 1 times found in 2° wet forest, 1 times found in lowland wet forest, 1 times found in primary rainforest, 1 times found in rainforest.
Found most commonly in these microhabitats: 2 times column on ground, 2 times nocturnal column, 2 times ex sifted leaf litter, 2 times nocturnal column on ground, 1 times at bait, 1 times column, 1 times nocturnal column in leaf litter, 2100hrs, 1 times nesting in nasute termite nest, 1 times Sobre Vegetacion, 1 times Hojarasca, 1 times ground foragers, ...
Collected most commonly using these methods: 5 times search, 2 times maxiWinkler, 1 times baiting, 1 times hand collecting, 1 times Mini Winkler, 1 times Sweeping.
Elevations: collected from 5 - 1410 meters, 822 meters average
Collect Date Range: collected between 1985-07-01 and 2015-07-03
