Dr. Roger hat zur Gattung GnamptogenysHNS: Ponera tornata RogHNS. und rimulosaHNS Rog. gestellt, wahrscheinlich gehoert auch Formica nodosaHNS Ltr. hierher.

Die Diagnose dieser Gattung in der Synopsis generum im NovaraWerke habe ich nach G. tornataHNS, von welcher ich ein typisches Exemplar besitze, entworfen; da nun oben beschriebene Art, welche ich auch zu dieser Gattung stellen muss, manche Eigentuemlichkeiten zeigt, so lasse ich hier eine vollstaendigere Gattungsdiagnose folgen:
