Nothing is known about the biology of Monomorium senegalense.
Bolton (1987) - A member of the M. australe complex in the M. salomonis species group. From the short original description of this species it certainly belongs in the salomonis-group, and is very probably a member of the australe-complex. Unfortunately nothing more definite can be said unless the type-series is rediscovered. It is interesting to note that in this complex Monomorium dakarense and senegalense are the only members recorded from West Africa, and it is possible that senegalense may be a senior synonym of dakarense.
