petiole short and broad with strongly reduced subpetiolar process (Hypoponera)

The petiole is subtriangular, relatively short and broad with distinctly convex anterior and posterior faces. The subpetiolar process is reduced to a small convexity that weakly breaks the outline of the ventral margin. Used in Antkey to separate Hypoponera zwaluwenburgi from Hypoponera opaciceps, Hypoponera punctatissima and Hypoponera ragusai.
