8. Pheidole flavens, Roger., var. farquharensisHNS, var. nov.

Une seule [[ worker ]] melee a des Camponotus grandidieriHNS. Les scapes sont un peu plus courts, et atteignent a peine le bord occipital. Les epines metanotales sont greles et pointues. Pilosite un peu plus courte et moins effilee. Du reste je ne puis la distinguer du type de la Ph. flavensHNS, n'ayant vu ni [[ soldier ]], ni [[ queen ]], ni [[ male ]]. Est-ce un transport par les vaisseaux de la Ph. flavensHNS d'Amerique centrale, espece tres variable et abondante? Il faut plus de materiel pour decider. He Farquhar.
