Crematogaster mancocapaciHNS NEW STATUS

Crematogaster brevispinosaHNS [misspelled here as brevispinaHNS] st. mancocapaci SantschiHNS, 1911:280 [Also described as new by Santschi, 1913:38.]. Syntype worker, queen, male: Ecuador, Chillacocha, 3900m , 1905 (Rivet) [NHMB, MHNG] (examined). Emery, 1922:134: combination in C. (Orthocrema)HNS.

This is a distinctive species, perhaps near crucisHNS. Workers are as large or larger than limataHNS, with long flexuous setae, but the setae are sparse, a pair on the face, a few pairs on the mesosoma; fourth abdominal tergite covered with long, sparse, fully appressed pubescence, such that if it were suberect and more dense it would be like crucisHNS; the propodeal spines are similarly short and upturned, and there is a strong anteroventral petiolar tooth; antenna with 3-segmented club; postpetiole broad and slightly sulcate.
