Bolton (2007) - T. antonii may be nothing more than a colour variant of cedarensis (see there), with which it is sympatric and which it matches in all other repects. In cedarensis the entire body is a more or less uniform dark brown, without a strong contrast between mesosoma and gaster, and the middle and hind coxae, femora and tibiae are usually dark.
