Collingwood & Agosti, 1996
Nothing is known about the biology of Camponotus gallagheri.
Collingwood and Agosti (1996) - The affinities of this species appear to be with the Camponotus thraso group but the denser sculpture of the head and alitrunk and the relatively large size of the major worker resemble more Camponotus thoracicus and allied species.
