Stanleyville, [[soldier]], [[worker]], [[queen]]; Garamba, [[soldier]], [[worker]]; Medje, [[soldier]], [[worker]], [[queen]]; Avakubi, [[soldier]], [[worker]]; Akenge, [[worker]]; Thysville, [[worker]]; Bengamisa, [[queen]], [[male]]; Niangara, [[queen]], [[male]] (Lang and Chapin). The workers from Akenge, two in number, were taken from the stomach of a Bufo polycercus, a female from Medje was from the stomach of a B. funereus, and one from Stanleyville from the stomach of a frog (Buna mascareniensis).

Under separate numbers two different native names, "suma" and "likulu," are given for this ant. The specimens from Stanleyville were found "running up and down the trunks of big trees near the Tshopo River in great numbers;" those from Medje were found in similar situations and also crawling over the tents. "When crushed, they gave off a stench like bugs."
