Etymology. The specific epithet is a patronymic referring to Dr. Barry Lee Bressler, retired physicist, former adjunct professor of physics at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and amateur naturalist, in recognition of his interest in myrmecology and his support for research on ants. The species epithet is treated as a noun in apposition, and thus invariant.
