Type data: Type whereabouts unknown <F> worker.probably deposited in ZMB, considering the specimen was received from Illiger who may have received his Brazilian specimens from Count von Hoffmannsegg, who in turn received material from his collectors Sieber (from Pará and Amazonas), Gomes (Pernambuco and Bahia), Feijó (Ceará) and Beltrão (Rio de Janeiro) and the collection Hoffmannsegg is now in Berlin, according to Dr. Gerardo Lamas,<I> in litteris; </I>Nogueira-Neto, 1970: 40 examined specimens from Latreille collection, in Oxford.
Type locality: Brazil.
