This species is an inhabitant of montane wet forest. All records are from workers and dealate queens collected from low vegetation or treefalls.
Longino and Snelling (2002) report P. kempfi from Peru. This is an error due to my early misidentification of a Peruvian specimen of P. subpilosus as P. kempfi. The two species are very similar, differing only in the base of the scape. It is flattened in P. kempfi, tapered and rounded at the base in P. subpilosus.
Found most commonly in these habitats: 1 times found in wet forest, 1 times found in montane wet forest.
Found most commonly in these microhabitats: 1 times strays, 1 times Sobre Vegetacion.
Collected most commonly using these methods: 1 times Sweeping.
Elevations: collected from 500 - 850 meters, 797 meters average
