pronotum with 3 pairs of erect hairs (Technomyrmex)

The pronotum with three pairs of erect hairs that differ from the appressed pilosity. Used in Antkey to separate some specimens of Technomyrmex pallipes from Technomyrmex albipes, Technomyrmex difficilis and Technomyrmex vitiensis. Technomyrmex pallipes can have 1-3 pairs of erect hairs on the pronotum. This character should be used with some caution because these hairs can be easily rubbed off prior to examination.
