C. BedotiHNS Emery

(Rev. zool. Suisse, I, p. 196 ', 1893), var. KlugiiHNS, n. var. - Cape Town; [[ worker ]] minor.

Extremement voisin du type de l'espece, dont il merite a peine d'etre separe comme variete geographique. La ponctuation est la meme et la tete est faiblement luisante par devant. La carene de l'epistome est plus marquee, mais beaucoup moins que chez C. LubbockiHNS Forel, dont cette Fourmi differe, d'ailleurs, ainsi que toutes les autres formes de C. BedotiHNS, par son thorax plus robuste, moins comprime en arriere. Pilosite comme chez les autres formes de C. BedotiHNS.
