Identification

Hosoishi (2015): Judging from the original description and figure, this species is close to Crematogaster hashimi and Crematogaster imperfecta. Menozzi (1930) described the following features: (1) propodeal spines small and blunt, inflated near the base; (2) postpetiole slightly narrower than petiole in dorsal view. The two features are not found in the related species. The postpetiole is as wide as or wider than petiole in C. hashimi and C. imperfecta.
