Description

Queen

Length, 6.5 mm. Pale reddish brown, shining. Thorax paler than the head; gaster dark brown, head and gaster sparsely (thorax apparently not at all) provided with short, erect hairs. Head throughout as in Colobopsis truncata. The sculpture is not so irregular as in this species, but consists of large, foveolate, shallow, somewhat shining punctures, each of which has a small puncture in its center; similar punctures are seen in truncata on the sides of the head. The frontal carinae are almost parallel, in truncata they converge distinctly in front. There are three large ocelli. In front and behind the thorax is delicately striolate-reticulate, but very sparsely punctulate on the mesonotal disc. Petiole rounded above. Gaster transversely rugulose. Wings hyaline, somewhat iridescent, with pale yellow veins and stigma. The neuration is exactly as in Camponotus.
