Gen. Typhlatta  HNS  .

Mandibles triangular; eyes obsolete; flagellum 9-jointed; petiole of the abdomen formed of 2 nodes.

The above characters are those of the worker of the species; probably an examination of the other sexes would present other very distinctive generic characters, particularly in the neuration of the wings: the palpi I have not examined.
