Camponotus jheringi  var. bajulus Emery. Kempf 1972: 52  . Misspelling.

Forel’s C. latinota  types from San Bernadino (the replacement name is C. bajulus Emery  ) have slightly longer pilosity on the mesosomal dorsum and gastric terga than Forel’s iheringi  type from São Paulo, but the two forms are otherwise similar. Forel (1909 a) separated the two based on surface sculpture and mesosomal structure, but the sculpture differences are slight and full nest series of this species I have collected show enough allometric variation in mesosomal structure to call into question the reliability of Forel’s distinction. Since C. iheringi  and C. bajulus  are allopatric and the differences are ambiguous at best, I find little reason to treat these forms as separate.
