Camponotus oceanicus is known only from the single queen described by Mayr in 1870. It has not been recorded since. The distinguishing feature of the specimen, according to Mayr, is the particularly broad clypeus and the particularly low petiolar node. It is one of the very few species that Mann was not able to find, and the recent survey also failed to recover any specimens matching the description. It is possible that the queen belongs to C. polynesicus, but examination of the type would be required to confirm its current status.
