Wheeler, W.M., 1933
Heterick (2009) - A very large, heavily sculptured and spectacular species found in coastal localities between Geraldton and Exmouth, but is rare in collections. However, a recent survey of the ants of the Carnarvon Basin (Gunawardene and Majer 2004) has revealed this ant to be quite common in the mid-west of WA.
