C. BianconiiHNS, n. sp.

- [[ worker ]] major. Praecedenti simillima, similiterque colorata et sculpta, sed major, genis hand pilosis et sine foveolis elongatis, sed tantum punctis minutis, pubem gerentibus, clypeo cum foveolis piligeris paucis, lobo truncato, subemarginuto, squama rufescente, altiore et subtiliore, utrinque convexa, margine supero aculo, femoribusque apice fuscis distinguenda. - Long. 9 mill.; caput 2,8 X 2,8; scapus 2,2; femur post. 2,5.

- Cape Town; un seul exemplaire.

Ressemble tellement au precedent, que l'on pourrait le regarder plutot comme sous-espece que comme espece distincte. Quoi qu'il en soit, la taille, l'absence des points-fossettes-et des poils dresses aux joues, ainsi que l'ecaillu etroite, biconvexe, a bord tranchant, caracterisent suffisamment cette Fourmi. La forme do la tete et du corselet sont a peu pres comme chez C. BertoloniiHNS.
