Salata, Karaman, Kiran & Borowiec, 2021
Nothing in known concerning the biology of this species (Salata et al., 2021).
A very distinct species. Its elongate head with distinctly converging posterior sides of head at first glance makes this species similar to some representatives of the Aphaenogaster cecconii species group but it differs in distinctly more developed sculpture of head and mesosoma than in any species in the A. cecconii group. From species of the A. splendida group the most similar is Aphaenogaster hamaensis, described and known from Syria, which also has elongate head with distinctly converging posterior sides. Aphaenogaster hamaensis distinctly differs from A. vohraliki in extremely short propodeal spines of the shape of reduced teeth while in A. vohraliki propodeal spines are long and elongate. Also Aphaenogaster kervillei, due to elongate head and slim legs, appears similar to A. vohraliki but differs in short, dentiform propodeal spines and posterior sides of head weakly converging posterad.
