Costa Rica: throughout in wet forests, sea level to 1500m cloud forest.
This species occurs in wet forest habitats from lowland rainforest to montane cloud forest. It occurs in Winkler samples of sifted leaf litter from the forest floor. I have observed and collected from only one nest. It was at the 1500m site of the Barva Transect (Finca Murillo), a cloud forest area. Along a stream edge I found a nest in clay soil of the stream bank. It was a 1cm diameter chamber about 10cm deep in the clay. The nest contained a single queen.
This species must routinely nest in the soil and forage in the leaf litter. Winkler samples frequently contain workers but I have never seen a queen in one. The only queen I have seen is from the one nest excavation. The queen is relatively distinctive and should be noticable if one occurred in a Winkler sample. This is in contrast to the similar JTL-005, whose queens are common in Winkler samples.
Found most commonly in these habitats: 176 times found in mature wet forest, 136 times found in montane wet forest, 43 times found in cloud forest, 14 times found in lowland rainforest, 1 times found in Puesto#12,297G, 10m, 1 times found in Puesto 4, 325g.,10m., 1 times found in Puesto3,335G. 10m., 2 times found in wet forest, 1 times found in Puesto #03,333G,10m., 1 times found in Puesto #08,06G,10m., ...
