Oliveira & Feitosa, 2019
Specimens of this species come from Reserva Natural Datanlí El Diablo, which is a patchy matrix of private coffee farms and primary and secondary cloud forests. The holotype was obtained from a sifted leaf-litter sample collected in a primary cloud forest, with many large oak trees and abundant tree ferns. The paratype was also found in a leaf litter sample from a montane wet forest, near coffee and agricultural clearings. Both localities are above 1300 meters of altitude.
Petiole unarmed; postero-ventral lobe short and evenly rounded; subpetiolar process weakly developed. Prora present; dorsal protuberance on posterior region of first gastral tergite absent.
Probolomyrmex cegua is similar to Probolomyrmex lamellatus, but has propodeal angles, absent in P. lamellatus, and the postero-ventral lobe of the petiole is rounded.
