Identification

Hosoishi (2015): Emery’s original description was based on a single queen. Our collections are limited to worker specimens, but two unique features are found in the type. First, the propodeal spines are not developed, as they are in the queen of Crematogaster agnetis Forel from Madagascar (Blaimer 2012a). Second, the body surface appearing smooth and shiny. The taxonomic status will remain uncertain until nest series become available.
