Soldier. Length 2.3 - 2.4 mm.

Distinctly smaller than the typical nodgii Forel and its subspecies tjibodana and maxwellensis. The head is more deeply impressed posteriorly than in tjibodana and more shining. Its sculpture is like that of the typical nodgii, the po~terior corners being coarsely reticulate-rugose with finely reticulated interrugal spaces, the humeri are less acute, the mesonotal torus much less pronounced, the epinotal spines decidedly shorter and the postpetiole proportionally longer, with less acute lateral angles. The color is black, like that of tjibodana, but the front, petiole, postpetiole and basal third of the first gastric segment are ferruginous

Type Material

Described from three specimens taken during January 1933 on Verlaten Island.
