Diagnosis (Females): Occipital lobe frequently present. Antennal club absent. Palp formula 2,2 to 3,2. Pronotum unarmed. Mesonotum not prominent, forming a continuous line with the propodeum, separated by a transverse suture. Promesonotal suture well marked, totally interrupting dorsal mesosomal sculpture. Propodeal spiracle oval or rounded, separated from the declivous face of propodeum by a distance longer than its diameter. Apex of protibia with a stout seta close to the strigil base; dorsum of posterior coxa without projections.

Distribution: Exclusively Australasian.

Notes: This speciose ectatommine genus could be considered an ecological equivalent of Ectatomma   in the Australian region. The most recent taxonomic tools for the identification of Rhytidoponera   species include the papers by Ward (1980, 1984) and Heterick (2009).
