Kohout (2010) - In spite of revisiting the type locality of P. bamaga specifically to collect more specimens (see Maschwitz et al., 2003), the types remain the only specimens of this species known. They were originally collected along the edge of a lowland riverine rainforest, foraging over low vegetation in association with Polyrhachis paxilla(see Kohout, 1990: 501).
