Myrmicocrypta squamosa uncinata (Mayr 1887)


Myrmicocrypta squamosa uncinata (Mayr 1887)  .

Literature records: Cordillera (Forel 1911 a). The relationship of M. squamosa uncinata  and M. squamosa squamosa  is unclear (J. Sosa-Calvo, pers. comm.). I have recorded a single common species in Paraguay related to M. squamosa  , and Forel’s record ( MHNG, examined) belongs to this species. M. squamosa  is the older name, so I use it here.
