Identification

Eguchi, Bui and Yamane (2011) - Lordomyrma bhutanensis and Lordomyrma sinensis which were recently transfered to Lordomyrma from Stenamma by Branstetter (2009) represent the named species of Lordomyrma known from mainland Asia. The two species differ in several important ways from other Asian species: (1) frontal carinae and scrobes absent; (2) apex of the anterior clypeal margin with a small tooth; (3) ventrolateral margin of the head not delineated by a short carina; (4) propodeal spines short; and (5) petiolar peduncle relatively long and slender. Thus, the generic limits between Lordomyrma and Lasiomyrma need re-examination (see notes under Lasiomyrma).
