3°29'33" S
15°18'33" E
Ngabe, Région de Pool; collected by sweep netting (fauchage)

{Tapinoma chiaromontei}The photomontage is of a worker from Congo, Dzio-Dzio, Ngabe, Région de Pool; collector Yves Braet. 

Somewhat smaller, TL ca 2.0 mm, than the type specimen but apparently matching in form, notably the anterior margin of the clypeus, the sculpturation of fine reticulation and colouration.

{Tapinoma chiaromontei}The photomontage is of a second worker from Congo, Dzio-Dzio
