Extant: 2 valid subspecies
Costa Rica to Venezuela. Costa Rica: northern Pacific lowlands.
I know this species from few collections. I have collected it (1) near Santa Cecilia, in Guanacaste Province, in a forest transitional between Atlantic wet forest and Pacific dry forest; (2) in Santa Rosa National Park, in the "bosque humedo;" (3) along the lower part of the road to Monteverde, sweeping scrubby roadside vegetation; and (4) at Carara Biological Reserve, around the headquarters building. All my collections have been isolated workers, so I have no information on nesting habits.
