J. Longino, 29 Sep 2015: Temnothorax stollii was described by Forel in 1884, based on a collection of workers and a male. The collection was by Stoll, from the summit of Volcan de Agua, Guatemala. The elevation was reported as 14,000 feet on the label and in the publication, but the peak is actually 12,340 feet (3,760m). Champion later collected a series of workers, males, and queens at the same site, with 13,000 feet on the label. Forel (1899) described the queen from the Champion series. The species has remained unknown since the collection of these two series. Bob Anderson just collected a nest series beneath a stone at a site just north of Huehuetenango (La Torre, Aldea Xemal, 15.48368 -91.53455 ±50m, 3791m, 14Jun2015, R. S. Anderson#2015-146X), in a moss-pine-juniper forest. The colony was polygynous, with multiple dealate queens.
This is a remarkable high-elevation Guatemalan endemic. The notched clypeus is a highly distinctive feature.
Found most commonly in these habitats: 2 times found in moss-pine-juniper forest.
Found most commonly in these microhabitats: 2 times under stone.
Collected most commonly using these methods: 2 times search.
Elevations: collected from 427 - 4267 meters, 3618 meters average
Collect Date Range: collected on 2015-06-14 00:00:00.0
