The antennal club is unusually long with two segments. Body color ranges from yellowish or light brown to dark brown. Colonies consist of many hundreds to a few thousand individuals. These ants nest in exposed soil or under various objects, in rotting wood, and in the woodwork and masonry of houses. Swarming usually occurs from mid summer to early fall.
