Primary type information:
Primary type material: lectotype queen (by designation of Wilson, 1984b: 323). Primary type locality: lectotype Guyana (“British Guiana”): Kartabo, 25.viii.1920, no. 638 (W.M. Wheeler). Primary type depository: MCZC.
Secondary type information:
Secondary type material: 7 paralectotype queens. Secondary type locality: 6 paralectotype queens with same data as lectotype, 1 paralectotype queen with same data as lectotype but 31.viii.1920, no. 721. Secondary type depository: MCZC.
Original description (if it can be called that) merely mentions the castes in passing; details of type material are as provided by Wilson, 1984b: 323. Both Wilson, 1984b: 325, and Wilson, 2003a: 456, seem unsure if the workers collected with the type series queens are actually conspecific.
