Identification

Dill (2002) - A member of the Dolichoderus scabridus species group. According to Viehmeyer’s original description, var. nigrogaster differs from the typical Dolichoderus indrapurensis by its coloration, the lengths of the hairs, and the length and inclination of the propodeal spines. Since these characters usually vary considerably within Dolichoderus species, nigrogaster is possibly a junior synonym of indrapurensis.
