Specimen Labels

Subspecies

Specimen records show C. peringueyi nests in cavities in dead wood, either on the ground or in standing vegetation. They also construct carton nests. These can be arboreal, on and under the ground, and in wood cavities. Collections have been made from vegetation, from nests inside wood cavities that are broken into, from readily visible carton nest sturctures, in litter samples, and in pitfall traps.
