Materials Examined

Material Examined. Holotype worker and 18 worker paratypes from Mt. Kaindi, Wau District, Papua New Guinea, 28 May 1982, J. O. and P.J. Schmidt (holotype and 11paratypes in LACM, 3paratypes in ANIC, 2paratypes in BMNH, 2paratypes in MCZC). Additional material: Papua New Guinea: 6mi. W Aiyura, 5,300ft. (Emerson,A.)
