This species is an inhabitant of wet forest canopy. It is moderately abundant at La Selva Biological Station, where it has been collected in Malaise traps, canopy fogging samples, and from several fresh treefalls. One nest has been observed: it was in a thin dead stem in the crown of a recently felled Carapa guianensis tree, and contained brood, several workers, a dealate queen, and several adult males. The P. J. Stern collection was "ex Triplaris."
Found most commonly in these habitats: 5 times found in rainforest, 1 times found in CC 1350 m., 1 times found in lowland rainforest, 1 times found in mature wet forest.
Found most commonly in these microhabitats: 1 times recently felled Carapa guianensis, foragers, 1 times recent treefall, 1 times recently felled Carapa guianensis, in dead stem, 2 times in fresh treefall, 1 times in recent branchfall, 1 times ex Triplaris, 1 times copa de árbol, 1 times Canopy fogging sample, 1 times malaise trap, 1-2 year second growth forest edge, 1 times Malaise trap.
Collected most commonly using these methods: 5 times Search, 2 times Fogging, 2 times Malaise.
