Among the small, monomorphic Solenopsis morphospecies in the LABECOL ant collection, this morphospecies is a distinct one and can be separated from the others by the following characteristics:
body overall yellowish;
mesosoma compact, blocky, the propodeum having relatively well-defined dorsal and descending (posterior) margins;
metanotal impression conspicuous;
propodeal spiracle small;
petiole conspicuously pedunculated, the node is tall and node's anterior margin in profile view rises steeply from peduncle;
in dorso-posterior oblique view, propodeum without a series of tranversal striae on the upper portion of its descending (posterior) face;
in face view, head lateral margins taper posteriorly
second pair of clypeal teeth reduced to minute indentations lateral to the medial pair, which is well-developed.
Solenopsis ufv-09 is very similar to ufv-08, but is smaller (WL 0.52 HW 0.36) and differing from it by the last three characteristics listed above (Note by Júlio Chaul, xi.2017).
