Description

Description (minor worker, damaged, with cracked pronotum). Posterolateral surface of head rounding gradually from the dorsal to lateral surfaces, the posteroventral surface very weakly concave. Petiolar node forming tapering dorsally into a blunt angle. Individual erect hairs scattered on dorsum of mesosoma, petiole and gaster; enlarged yellow hairs present on dorsal surface of first three gastral tergites; pubescence thin and sparse across entire body. Colour black, legs and gaster dark red­black. Description (major worker). Differing from minor worker in the typically broader head and more abundant hairs. Other characters as in minor worker. Measurements. Minor worker (n= 1, paratype): CI 95, HL 2.00mm, HW 1.89mm, ML 2.89mm, MTL 2.05mm, SI 124, SL 2.35mm. Major worker (n= 1, holotype): CI 100, HL 2.31mm, HW 2.33mm, ML 2.97mm, MTL 2.04mm, SI 95, SL 2.21mm.
