Thysville, [[worker]]; Poko, [[worker]]; Boma, [[worker]]; Zambi, [[worker]] (Lang and Chapin); Zambi, [[worker]], [[queen]] (J. Bequaert). The specimens from Zambi were found climbing on grass-stalks in the savannah; the others bear no data except the localities. The nesting habits of this ant are very probably the same as those of the closely allied gagates  HNS  (vide infra), also taken in the savannah and in the same locality.
