Say, Bost. Journ. Nat. Hist. i. 293. 6.

I have carefully examined several individuals of the worker of this species from Makassar, and compared them with specimens obtained from North America, Brazil, and from houses in London, and can detect no specific difference ; the examples from Celebes are paler at the apex of the abdomen ; beyond this, I see no difference. I consider M. molesta  HNS  a cosmopolitan species, which has been carried in merchandize to all parts of the world.
