- Hamnian's-Kraal.

Je n'ai vu qu'une ouvriere minor de cette forme qui, par la sculpture et la pubescence, imite exactement C. GrandidieriHNS Forel. La forme du thorax comme chez C. Olivieri. La tete est plus allongee que chez C. Grandidieri; le scape depasse l'occiput d'un tiers environ de sa longueur. Couleur noire, les mandibules et les antennes rousses. - Long. 4 1 / 2 mill.
