Holotype: TL 1.95; HL 0.49; HW 0.38; SL 0.35; EL/HW 0.24; range: CI 78.5-79; SI 90-92.
The clypeus is emarginate. The eyes with six ommatidia in the longest row are set slightly forward of the midlength of the head. The alitrunk in profile shows no dip in the dorsal outline, the mesopropodeal break appearing as a simple line. There are no dorsal hairs on the alitrunk or nodes. The head has no well-defined sculpture and that of the alitrunk dorsum, nodes and lower face of the first gastral tergite is punctate but not dense. The colour is dull greyish yellow.
Holotype: worker, Saudi Arabia, Wadi Majarish, 21°23'N 40°15'E, 17.II.1983, W. Buttiker. - Paratypes: workers, same series as holotype.
Collingwood and Agosti (1996) - This species was wrongly identified as Monomorium schultzei in Collingwood (1985) but that species has not been confirmed for Arabia.
