Identification

Fernández (2004) - A member of the Carebara lignata species complex. The description of this species is based on a female collected in Argentina (Santschi, 1933). Kusnezov (1951) described a “dinergatogyny”, and illustrated part of the female, dinergatogyne, and worker. The description is poor, though, and does not permit an adequate evaluation of the limits of this species with its neighbors.
