Collingwood and Agosti (1996) - This species differs from Cardiocondyla emeryi by the sharper more upright spines, the more shallow mesopropodeal furrow, the more domed petiole, the wider postpetiole and stronger alitrunk sculpture.

Unless otherwise noted the text for the remainder of this section is reported from the publication that includes the original description.
Holotype: TL 3.23; HL 0.60; HW 0.46; SL 0.47; EL 0.155; PW 0.152; PPW 0.29.
The antennal scapes just fail to meet the occipital margin. The eyes are prominent. The mesopropodeal furrow is shallow, the mesonotum meeting the propodeum at an oblique angle. The propodeum is mildly convex, not flat. The propodeal spines are moderately long (0.09 mm). The petiole is a thick rounded dome longer than wide in dorsal view. The postpetiole is clearly wider than long and almost twice as wide as the petiole. The head is coarsely sculptured with large shallow punctures and a median band of longitudinal striae. The alitrunk and petiole have similar but more superficial sculpture on the dorsum while the postpetiole and gaster are smooth with a faint reticulate sculpture. The colour is evenly brown with legs and antennae only slightly paler.
