1. Camponotus angusticepsHNS n. sp.

[[ worker ]] minor. Nigra, mandibulis, articalationibus pedum tar sisque piceo-ru-fescentibus, opaca, creberrime punctata, sparse pilosa, pube adpressa, in abdomine densissima ibique und ' neo-sericea; caput latitudine maxima plus duplo longius (fig. 1),. lateribus subrectis, fere parallelus, postico trun-catum, angiitis rotundatus; mandibulae 7 - dentatae, dente apicali magno, acuto, subtilissime punctatae et punctis majoribus piligeris sparsae; clypeus carinatus, antice lobatus; area frontalis indistincta; thorax dorso aequali, arcuato; squama ovata later aliter visa cunei formis: pedes graciles. L. 7 1 / 2 — 8 1 / 2 mm.

Por la densa pubescenza ricorda il C. micans Nyl.HNS ed ha uno splendore sericeo marezzato ancora piu intenso e di colore grigio bronzino. La forma del capo e affatto speciale e non rassomiglia a quella di nessun altro CamponotusHNS a me noto. Ho veduto due soli esemplari che mi pare siano [[ worker ]] minori. Rimano problematica la forma dell' [[ worker ]] maggiore.
