Distribution and biology.

Carebara nosindambo  is a widespread species found in the east, central and southwestern parts of Madagascar (Figure 69). Specimens were found in the following habitats: disturbed gallery, montane forest, ericoid thickets on sand, grassland, littoral forest, littoral rainforest, transition to montane forest, montane forest, montane rainforest, marsh edge, montane shrubland, park/garden, and rainforest. C. nosindambo  was found at elevations ranging from 10 m to 1580 m, and specimens were collected using maxi-Winkler traps, Berlese funnels, and pitfall traps. Individuals and colonies were found in sifted litter, leaf mold, rotten wood, rotten logs, root matter of Asplenium  sp. (using Berlese trap), under stones, in ground nests, sifted litter, dead tree stumps, dead twigs above ground, and leaf litter.

Comments.

Carebara nosindambo  can be confused with C. omasi  but can be separated by the sculpture of the posterolateral portion of the cephalic dorsum, which is sculptured in C. nosindambo  and lacking sculpture in C. omasi  . C. nosindambo  is widely distributed in the center and east of Madagascar, with one record in the southwestern part of the island, while C. omasi  is present in central and southwestern parts of Madagascar. Others thirteen species were recorded at the same localities: C. bara  , C. betsi  , C. dota  , C. grandidieri  , C. hainteny  , C. hiragasy  , C. jajoby  , C. kabosy  , C. mahafaly  , C. omasi  , C. placida  , C. raberi  , and C. sampi  .

C. nosindambo  have four intermediates in the major worker subcaste (Figure 53). The head is longer than wide, in full-face view nearly subquadrate, the posterolateral corners are rounded in intermediates 1 and 2, and slightly narrowed posteriorly in intermediates 3 and 4. The posterior margin of the head is concave in intermediates 1 and 2, and deeply concave in intemediates 3 and 4. The eyes are small and reduced to one ommatidium in intermediates 1 and 2, with up to twelve ommatidia in intermediate 4. Ocelli are absent in intermediates 1, 2 and 3, but present and well developed in intermediate 4 (one or two ocelli). Reduced flight sclerites are present in intermediate 4. The dorsum of the mesosoma is convex anteriorly and gradually slopes to the declivity in intermediate 4, while in intermediates 1, 2 and 3, the dorsum of the mesosoma is convex and slopes anteriorly, the propodeum is below the promesonotum, the promesonotum is nearly rounded. The propodeum is armed with a pair of small triangular teeth in all intermediates. The anterior margin of the petiole in intermediate 4 is nearly straight, but concave in the center in the other intermediates. The sculpture of the head is nearly the same in all the intermediates, with parallel and longitudinal rugae, the frontal area is smooth and shiny; the sculpture of the mesosoma is also the same in all intermediates. The pilosity on the head and body follows the same pattern, except for intermediate 4, which has more abundant, short appressed hairs on the gaster.
