Leptogenys camerunensis StitzHNS

(West-African. Ameisen. Mitt. Zool. Mus. Berlin 1910). Cette espece n'a aucune affinite avec la Leptog. (Lobopelta) attenuataHNS, Smith (non Roger comme l'indique Stitz), avec laquelle l'auteur la compare. C'est une veritable LeptogenysHNS proche parente de la StuhlmanniHNS Mayr, mais distincte par sa couleur roussatre et par son epinotum lisse. Du reste a peu pres identique a la StuhlmanniHNS.
