  Cardiocondyla minutior is a small (~ 1.5 mm), nondescript, yellowish brown to blackish brown species with short antennal scapes and moderately sized propodeal spines, and without erect hairs on its mesosoma. The C. minutior species group reaches its greatest diversity in the Indomalayan region, and may be the ancestral area of C. minutior prior to its dispersal across much of the globes tropical and subtropical regions (Seifert, 2003). Despite its success at invading new habitats (Heinze et al., 2006), C. minutior remains an inconspicuous member of the ant fauna across its range, and is not reported to cause harm to either humans or native species.
