Aenictus watanasiti Jaitrong & Yamane   Fig. 1C

Non-type material examined.

Three workers from CHINA, Guizhou Province, Leigongshan, 6.VII.1988, leg. Minsheng Wang; original label in Chinese "贵州雷公山 / 1988.VII.6 /王敏生 / 中科院动物所“; (in IZAS: IOZ(E)1379710, all three workers on a single pin).

Remarks.

The three specimens of Aenictus watanasiti   from Leigong Moutain, Guizhou Province, agree very well with the original description and the illustrations of Jaitrong and Yamane (2013, therein fig. 18 A–D). This is the so far northernmost record of Aenictus watanasiti   and the first record from China.
