Crematogaster (Sphaerocrema) nigrans (Forel)HNS.

(= Crematogaster foraminiceps Sants. st. nigrans ForelHNS, 1915, Bull. Soc. Vaud. Sc. Nat. L. p. 338).

Cette espece me parait tres voisine de Cr. phoenix SantsHNS. decrite avant d'avoir remarque que Cr. nigrans appartenaitHNS au S. G. SphaerocremaHNS. Cependant phoenix presente un sillon median sur la face basale de l'epinotum qui manque chez foraminicepsHNS et que ne mentionne pas la description originale de nigricansHNS.
