subpetiolar process weakly developed or absent (Solenopsis)

The subpetiolar process is weak to absent, never as a well developed flange or lobe. If a process is present, it is located at the far anterior end of the petiole and maybe be difficult to see on most specimens. Used in Antkey to separate Solenopsis geminata from Solenopsis xyloni.
