Brachymyrmex obscurior is a small, dull brown, non-descript and soft-bodied ant that is associated with marginal and synanthropic habitats. Wilson and Taylor (1967) raised B. obscurior to species status, qualifying their decision as a "purely provisional measure, contingent upon a fuller revision of the large and difficult genus it which it belongs." It is native to the Neotropics and introduced to regions including the Pacific Islands, and the Netherlands.
