" Worker. - Length 4 mm. Rather dull yellow; gaster, postpetiole and femora yellowish brown; tips of the epinotal spines brownish black. In other respects like the type of the species and the var. mutabilis (Santschi), but the median impression of the pronotum is feebler. The dark tips of the spines contrast with the pale color of the thorax." (Santschi)

A dozen workers from Yakuluku (Lang and Chapin).
