Costa Rica: Pe–as Blancas, Tortuguero, La Pita on road to Monteverde, Hitoy Cerere.
I know this species from relatively few collections. I collected it in Winkler samples of sifted leaf litter from Hitoy Cerere and Pe–as Blancas (Refugio Eladio), both wet forest sites. I also collected workers in a sweep sample of low vegetation at La Pita along the road to Monteverde. This was scrubby roadside vegetation in a highly seasonal and agricultural landscape. Mary Cornelius, an OTS student, did field project at Tortuguero, sampling ants from domatia on Tococa leaves. One domatium contained a nest of this species, with queen and males.
Found most commonly in these habitats: 20 times found in mature wet forest, 3 times found in wet forest, 5 times found in montane wet forest, 2 times found in tropical rainforest, mature, big trees, 2 times found in tropical rainforest, with big trees, probably primary, 2 times found in tropical rainforest, with some big trees, probably a mix of primary and secondary forest, 1 times found in pine, oak, Liquidambar, 1 times found in Primary wet forest, 1 times found in roadside vegetation.
Found most commonly in these microhabitats: 27 times ex sifted leaf litter, 3 times Hojarasca, 1 times ex Tococa domatium, 1 times sweeping vegetation, 1 times forest litter, 1 times ex sifted leaf litter and rotten wood, 1 times beating veg., 1 times at bait.
Collected most commonly using these methods: 21 times miniWinkler, 5 times Winkler, 3 times Mini Winkler, 2 times Berlese, 1 times baiting, 1 times beating, 1 times Foggin, 1 times maxiWinkler, 1 times sweep.
Elevations: collected from 5 - 1930 meters, 411 meters average
Collect Date Range: collected between 1984-07-13 and 2020-02-16
