Diagnosis. Among species on Nannotrigona   occurring in Colombia, this species can be easily recognized by its small body size (~ 3.4 mm in body length), and shiny and sparsely punctate mesoscutum and mesoscutellum. An- other species, N. dutrae (Friese)   from northeastern Brazil, shares the same morphological features. However, in that species the omaulus is strongly carinate and the clypeus and paraocular area are largely glabrous (omaulus rounded and clypeus and paraocular area distinctly pubescent in N. schultzei   ).

Distribution. This species occurs in Bolivia, Brazil, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, and Venezuela ( Table 1 View TABLE 1 ). In Colombia, it is found in the Amazonian and Orinoquia regions ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 ).

Comments. This species is recorded for the first time for Colombia. It is widely distributed in northern South America but poorly represented in Colombian collections.
