The Ponerini may be paraphyletic (i.e. may include Thaumatomyrmex) but are characterized by the following apomorphies (Bolton 2003):
  • Median portion of clypeus narrowed posteriorly, narrowly inserted between frontal lobes as a slender triangle or linear strip
  • Antennal sockets closely approximated
  • Inner borders of frontal lobes very closely approximated mediodorsally on head or confluent for most or all of their length (often separated merely by a sulcus)
