8. Azteca delpiniHNS.

Azteca delpini, EmeryHNS, Mem. Accad. Sci. Bologna, (5) iii. p. 133 ([[ worker ]]) (1893) 1. Hab. Guatemala, San Geronimo (Champion). - Bresil 1.

Cette espece ressemble a l' A. veloxHNS, mais elle est plus svelte, moins dimorphe, plus luisante et a le thorax tres peu voute et presque sans etranglement. J'en ai decouvert aux Antilles une race qui est la premiere AztecaHNS trouvee dans ces iles (sauf Trinidad, qui a la faune continentale de l'Orenoque).
