Camponotus compressiscapus AndreHNS.

(Revue d'Ent., t. VIII, 1889, p. 218).

J'ai egalement decrit cette espece d'apres une seule ouvriere media. Depuis, j'ai recu de Sierra-Leone plusieurs autres individus, mais seulement des ouvrieres media et minor, sans aucune ouvriere major. L'ouvriere minor, qui est de meme taille que la media, se distingue de cette derniere par sa tete plus ou moins retrecie en arriere, avec le bord posterieur arrondi et les angles non saillants. La longueur du corps, chez les divers exemplaires que j'ai sous les yeux, est peu variable et oscille entre 7 et 8 mill.
