Present distribution is likely to have been mediated by human intervention (commerce and transport of goods, soil, potted plants). Specifically, given the seemingly absence of nuptial flight, the dispersal capacity of this ant is very low. The local expansion is a very slow process and distances attained are two to five orders of magnitude smaller than minimum distances between known populations (see figure below)

Distribution of yearly local dispersal distances (grey) and long-dispersal events (black). X-axis units are km.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An analysis based on the first collection date (year) of non-native populations (up to June 2010) shows a regular increase over time, with a rate of two new localities discovered each year and from a new country every two years (see figure below). Samples dated earlier than 1990 (year of formal description) and coming from entomological collections, indicate already a growing trend.

Relationship between the cumulative number of known countries and localities and time (year of collection for non-native populations). Arrow indicates year of formal description (1990).
