Recent collections of this species are from lowland wet to moist forest habitat, from 70–270 m elevation. The type is apparently from a somewhat higher site near Ocosingo. All recent specimens are from Winkler samples of sifted leaf litter. In quantitative sampling carried out during Project LLAMA, this species occurred in 4 of 100 miniWinkler samples at a lowland Chiapas site and in 7 of 100 samples from in and near Tikal National Park in Guatemala.
Worker. HW 0.53–0.59 (n=5); mandible with three widely spaced denticles on masticatory margin, middle denticle largest; subapical tooth with minute reclinate denticle at base; subapical tooth about twice as long as apical tooth; intercalary teeth prominent, one closest to apical tooth about half as long as apical tooth; labrum subrectangular, outer margins diverging anteriorly, anterior margin very shallowly and evenly concave, with minute notch medially; posterior margin of clypeus elevated above anterior face; arcuate grooves and ridges of face very shallow; mesosomal dorsum evenly and shallowly convex in profile, metanotal groove not or very weakly impressed; propodeal tooth obtuse to right angled, infradental lamella broad and descending almost perpendicularly from tooth; about 12 squamiform setae on posterior half of first gastral tergite. The queen and male are unknown.
Found most commonly in these habitats: 7 times found in tropical moist forest, 6 times found in 2º wet forest, 1 times found in montane forest.
Found most commonly in these microhabitats: 13 times ex sifted leaf litter, 1 times ex sifted litter.
Collected most commonly using these methods: 11 times MiniWinkler, 2 times maxiWinkler, 1 times Winkler.
Elevations: collected from 70 - 581 meters, 240 meters average
Collect Date Range: collected between 1995-03-14 and 2019-06-29
