All the sexes of this species have been received from Mr. Bates: figures are given of the male and female; the latter only differs from the worker in having the thorax more robust, and in being winged: the male is four lines and a half long, black, with the abdomen and legs smooth and shining, the head and thorax rugose as in the worker; the tarsi, articulations of the legs and apex of the antennae testaceous; the head is triangular, prolonged behind into a neck, with the eyes larger and more prominent than in the other sexes; the abdomen is elongate-ovate.
