Specimen labels

Lattke (1991): S.P. Cover (pers. comm.) reports capturing this rare species, previously known only from SE Brazil: PERU, Tambopata, Cuzco Amazónico, 15 km NE Puerto Maldonado, 13-IV-89, S. Cover & J. Tobin, leg. Samples CA-129 and CA-119. Both samples were taken from clay soil at the base of a large tree, and each sample yielded two workers. All are deposited in MCZC. These specimens compare well with the degenerata type, however all 4 have 6 antennomeres, and not 7 as does the type.
