C'est plutot une variete du D. affinis dont il differe surtout par sa couleur plus obscure, d'ailleurs assez variable, mais allant jusqu'au brun fonce; les cuisses sont d'un noiratre plus stable. La pilosite est comme chez D. affinis in sp. C'est la forme la plus frequente des Dorylus recoltes par MM. Alluaud et Jeannel.
