Nothing is known about the biology of Allomerus undecemarticulatus.
Fernández (2007) - This is an atypical Allomerus species, and may not belong to the genus. There are 11-segments, the majority of the species possesses 10 or fewer. The holotype antennae are lost, but the box in which it was separated had a label that said “undecemarticulatus”. The head is clearly longer than wide and the scape has the same width along the shaft. The propodeum is at almost the same level as the promesonotum. The presence of a weakly impressed promesonotal suture is discordant, because it is not well known from myrmicines and lacking in almost all solenopsidines. More specimens from this interesting species are needed, in order to confirm its placement in the genus.
