Related to T. dubitatiformis
This specimen has the first tergite with a white band and there is a transverse suture anterior to the scutellar scale. This is certainly Timulla vagans, and probably an older specimen because the typical white stipes on the second tergite are rubbed off.

Timulla sp.
Possibly T. dubitatiformis.
