Identification

Ionescu-Hirsch (2009) - According to Menozzi (1933), the Israeli specimens of C. interjectus have the metanotal groove distinctly impressed, similar to Camponotus rebeccae, but differ from C. rebeccae by having erect setae scattered all over the propodeal dorsum, as opposed to a single transversal row of erect setae restricted to the junction of the propodeal dorsum with declivity; they have a black head and gaster, as opposed to the head paler than the gaster in C. rebeccae.
