The first gastral tergite is covered with dense pubescence, giving it a dull appearance. Used in Antkey to separate Brachymyrmex minutus and Brachymyrmex obscurior from Brachymyrmex heeri and Brachymyrmex patagonicus. Also used to separate Nylanderia bourbonica, Nylanderia fulva and Nylanderia vaga from all other Nylanderia species.
