mesosoma with long thick hairs present

The dorsal surface of the mesosoma has long erect hairs that differ distinctly from any appressed pilosity. The hairs are thick at the base, arranged in pairs, and can be either flexuous or stiff. Used in Antkey to separate Nylanderia and Paratrechina from other formicine and dolichoderine genera.
