Etymology L Camilla, a legendary Volscian huntress and warrior.
Diagnosis A medium-sized, brown member of the flavensHNS group, whose major is recognizable by a variable bulge in the middle of the dorsal surface of the head seen in side view, anterior to which the dorsal surface is variously rugulose and carinulate, and posterior to which the surface is covered by broken rugulae in the center and rugoreticulum on the side. In addition, the major is notable for its well-developed mesonotal convexity and large propodeal spines. At 50-60X some of the mesosomal and gastral hairs appear to have flattened apices. The minor has large spines and the entire body surface is sculptured, foveolate and opaque, except for the gaster, which is smooth and shiny.
