Taxonomic Notes

Seifert (2019): This taxon has been described from Asia Minor. Type specimens depicted in antweb.org under CASENT0910440 and CASENT0910441 show an absent or weak metanotal depression, a very convex overall dorsal profile line of mesosoma as well as a much stronger sculpture and much denser pubescence on all body surfaces than observed in any member of the C. lateralis group.
