MALE Unknown.

Etymology. The epithet mitiae   is a Latin noun in the genitive case created by adding the singular Latin genitive case suffix -e to the first name of a female person. This species is named in honor of M.A. Ulysséa’s beloved friend Mítia Heusi Silveira (1984–2010), who had her life interrupted by femicide. As an undergraduate student, she developed projects with Fungi and Coleoptera   . After university, she worked at FUNAI, a Brazilian governmental agency for the protection of indigenous interests and culture.

Comments. Hylomyrma mitiae   is similar to H. virginiae   and H. sagax   . All three are allopatric, but nevertheless occur in northwestern South America. Hylomyrma mitiae   has been recorded only in French Guiana ( Fig. 87 View FIGURE 87 ), H. sagax   is restricted to southeast Colombia ( Fig. 83 View FIGURE 83 ), whereas H. virginiae   has been recorded in Ecuador (both sides of The Andes) and in western Colombia ( Fig. 89 View FIGURE 89 ). Hylomyrma mitiae   can be distinguished from H. virginiae   (characteristic in parentheses) by the comparatively larger body, TL 5.27–5.52 mm, WL 1.41–1.52 mm (vs. smaller, TL 4.94–5.20 mm, WL 1.24–1.40 mm), the gena and laterodorsal region of head are covered with very thin striae between the vermicular to vermiculated-areolated striae (vs. very thin striae superimposed on vermicular to vermiculated-areolated striae), the metanotal groove distinguished by a slight depression (vs. indistinct), the continuous dorsal margin of petiole (vs. discontinuous), and the very prominent and subtriangular subpostpetiolar process (vs. weak and slightly convex). Hylomyrma mitiae   is distinguished from H. sagax   by the pair of medium sized teeth laterally at the clypeus anterior margin (vs. large teeth), the presence of smooth interspaces between the vermicular striae only on the mesosomal dorsum (vs. on the entire mesosoma), and the subtriangular subpostpetiolar process (vs. convex).

Distribution. This species is only known from French Guiana ( Fig. 87 View FIGURE 87 ).

Natural history. Most specimens were found in leaf-litter samples, which suggests that nests are located in fallen logs, rotten wood, between leaves, or inside natural cavities of the superficial soil layers.

Regular and longitudinal striae on head dorsum diverge towards posterior margin, interspaces between thicker striae filled with thinner striae; regular and irregular striae on mesosoma assuming multiple directions, interspaces smooth; dorsal tooth of propodeal lobe acute, ventral tooth blunt; dorsal margin of mesosoma slightly discontinuous, somewhat straight (mesosoma slightly flattened dorsally), promesonotal junction and metanotal groove discernible by a slight depression (LV) and altered sculpture (DV); propodeal spine long; dorsal margin of petiole continuous, convex; ventral surface with transverse striae from petiole spiracle to posterior end of petiole; irregular, longitudinal and anastomosed striae node dorsum; postpetiole smooth; subpostpetiolar process predominantly smooth, weak, convex; profemur posterior surface and protibia extensor surface smooth; striation on tergum of first gastral segment restricted to base, very short striae.

MALE Unknown.

Etymology. The specific epithet is in reference to the montane distribution of this species.

Comments. This species is easily distinguished from almost all of its congeners, but it is very similar to H. lispectorae   regarding the shape of mesosoma, and the sculpture and shape of the procoxa, petiole, postpetiole, and gaster. The two species are sympatric, co-occuring in two Ecuadorian localities: Centro Científico Río Palenque, and 4 km E of Santo Domingo de los Colorados ( Figs. 83 View FIGURE 83 , 84 View FIGURE 84 ). Hylomyrma montana   can be distinguished from H. lispectorae   (characteristic in parentheses) by the dorsum of head and mesosoma with irregular striae of uniform thickness with interspaces distinguishable (vs. vermicular striae of variable thickness with interspaces indistinguishable), and the somewhat straight dorsal margin of mesosoma (vs. notably convex).

The morphological variation displayed by H. montana   is associated with the presence of intercastes. Three specimens have an inconspicuous central ocellus, and a more pronounced depression on the metanotal groove. Two specimens (#17842, #17840) from Chiriqui-Bocas del Toro, Panama, have more queen-like traits, as larger bodies [HL (1); HW (0.94–0.98); ML (0.58–0.62); SL (0.68–0.70); MOD (0.22–0.23); PNW (0.25–0.26); WL (1.32–1.34); PSL (0.30–0.31); PL (0.64–0.65); PW (0.25–0.26); PPL (0.36); PPW (0.35–0.38); GL (1.18–1.30); TL (5.09–5.26)], the presence of three ocelli, the well-marked promesonotal suture, the differentiated mesonotum (scutum, transcutal suture, prescutellum, and scutellum) and metanotum.

Distribution. Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Panama ( Fig. 83 View FIGURE 83 ).

Natural history. This species inhabits wet forest sites at elevations between 29 and 1800 m. Specimens are frequently found in leaf-litter samples, which suggests that nests are located in leaf-litter, fallen logs, rotten wood, or inside natural cavities of the superficial soil layers. Except for the presence of intercastes, there is no further information available regarding the biology of H. montana   .
