AneuretusHNS, n. gen .

Operaria: Caput cordiforme: Clypeus magnus, subtrigonus, antice medio emarginatus, inter antennarum arliculationes productus, utrinque cum fossa clypeali. Laminae frontales distantes, humiles, divergentes, subrectae. Oculi depressi; ocelli nulli. Mandibulae trigonae, margine masticatorio denticulata. Antennae 12 - articulatae, graciles, scapo elongata, flagella filiformi, apicem versus sensim incrassata, sine clava distincta, articulo ultimo duobus praecedentibus una subaequali. Thorax suturis distinctis, metanoto bispinoso. Segmentum petiolare elongatum, cylindricum, postice cum nodo minuto, globoso. Abdomen fere sine strictum inter segmenta duo priora. Pedes graciles, calcaribus vix denticulalis, unguiculis simplicibus.

La presence de l'aiguillon et le pedicule de l'abdomen, constitue par un seul segment, classent ce genre parmi les Ponerides. La forme de la tete, ses lames frontales distantes l'une de l'autre et peu elevees, son epistome large et peu convexe, ses antennes greles, filiformes, rappellent un DolichoderusHNS ou un IridomyrmexHNS. L'on pourrait pour cela soupconner une parente avec les Dolichoderides: mais si l'on compare bien cette tete avec celle d'un TyphlomyrmexHNS, il ne sera pas difficle de reconnaitre l'analogie de structure. Le thorax rappelle celui de certains PheidoleHNS et la pedicule a une forme toute particuliere. Je suppose que c'est une Fourmi vagabonde, peut-etre arboricole.
