J. Longino, 6 Dec 2021: DNA barcoding associates workers from a site in Chiapas, Mexico, and a male from Guatemala. The male keys to radoszkowskii, the workers key near opacithorax, but differ in a few details. The frontal carinae are enlarged and projecting anteriorly, mirroring the exagerated anterior clypeal teeth of the male.
