Identification

Dill (2002) - A member of the Dolichoderus sulcaticeps species group. Regarding the surface sculpturing, siggii is intermediate between Dolichoderus sulcaticeps and Dolichoderus patens: its entire body is finely reticulate and shiny, only mesopleuron and propodeum are somewhat more coarsely wrinkled; the entire body is castaneous-brown. D. siggii may possibly be distinguished from both species by its relatively low petiolus scale (PtL / PtH > 1.7).
