A statistical analysis of 12 characters showed significant d1fferences among the two castes (workers and queens). Most of these characters were arger in the queens. Other morfological differences between castes were recognized in head, mandibles and gaster. Five larval instars were found for this species and the capsules of the head in larvae grows at constant rate of 1,39, in accordance with Dyar's rule.
