Cardiocondyla cristata SantsHNS. (= Monomorium cristatum SantsHNS.).

— Cette espece, comme me le fait remarquer M. Emery, se rattache plutot au genre CardiocondylaHNS; elle est cependant tres aberrante par la forme de son thorax etrangle et le 2 e n oe ud bien moins large que chez les autres CandiocondylaHNS, a peine plus large que chez certains MonomoriumHNS.
