Medium to dark reddish-brown, base of gaster paler, mandibles, antennae apically, coxae, and tarsi slightly to distinctly paler; head and alitrunk with moderately coarse rugose/reticulate sculpture, surface moderately glossy between ridges. The very distinctive striae which radiate from the base of the gaster are diagnostic for this species. Additionally, the characters presented in the key and the coarse sculpturing make this species quite distinct.
A very striking and distinctive species under the microscope, this ant appears to be strictly arboreal.
