| Allomerus vogeli|
The type material was collected in Myrmidone macrosperma.
Fernández (2007) - In the original description, Kempf (1975) mentions that the A. vogeli worker possesses 9 flagelomeres, sometimes 10 due to the division of segments 2 or 3, the worker (Figure 1 in Kempf 1975) has 11 segments as a total. Allomerus vogeli, Allomerus dentatus and Allomerus maietae share in the possession of a propodeal tooth or spine, which separates them from the rest of the species that belong to the genus. Allomerus vogeli is distinguished from A. dentatus (the closest related species according to morphological traits) because of the position of the propodeal spiracle that in A. dentatus is closer to the propodeal spine than in A. vogeli.
