Identification

Mera-Rodriguez, et al. (2020) – Subocular prominence higher than eye in frontal view of head; anteroventral petiolar denticle well-developed; body with abundant semi-erect thick hairs; propodeum without denticles; and cephalic neck short and lacking carina (Lattke 1997).

Distribution

Mera-Rodriguez, et al. (2020) – Besides the Colombian departments of Antioquia, Valle del Cauca, and San Andres Island, A. reburrumP is only known from French Guiana (Lattke 1997; Fichaux et al. 2019), but this disjunct distribution suggests the species might be more widely distributed across northern South America and possibly the Caribbean.
