Diagnosis (minor worker). Enlarged hairs on pronotum present, limited to a band along the central 1/3 of its width; dorsal surface of head with abundant, closely spaced pubescence; mesonotum strongly arched and dorsum of mesosoma forming a strong arch with the propodeum relatively low (similar to Fig. 6); dorsum of gaster golden yellow, lighter in color than mesosoma.
Description (minor worker). Lateral surface of head strongly concave with a strong angle or ridge running between the eye and the posterolateral corner, the head widest slightly above the eyes, slightly narrower just above the mandibular insertions and narrowest just below the eyes. Antennal scape very long, surpassing posterior margin of head by about three-fourths its length. Petiolar node low, block-like (the dorsal surface flat) and with a slight anterior tilt. Individual erect hairs scattered on dorsum of mesonotum, propodeum and gaster; enlarged yellow-white hairs present on central one-third of pronotum; pubescence abundant on head and dorsum of mesosoma, sparse on lateral mesosoma and gaster. Colour black with the posterior two-thirds of the gastral dorsum dark yellow.
Comments. This species is so far known only from the single type specimen.
