The species group is widely distributed in Asia. The members of this group are characterised by a slender body, long legs, anterior clypeal margin with 5-10 denticles and a weakly-developed subpetiolar process. Twelve worker-based species of this group have been recorded from Asia. Herein, two new species from Thailand ( and ) are added to this group. A key to the Asian species of this group is provided.
