Camponotus innocens Forel 1909  . NEW STATUS.

Camponotus trapeziceps  var. innocens Forel 1909: 264  . [w syntypes examined, MHNG; San Bernadino, Cordillera, Paraguay (Fiebrig)].

Camponotus (Myrmaphaenus) trapeziceps  var. innocens Forel. Emery 1925: 156  .

Both C. innocens  and C. trapeziceps  (w syntypes examined, MHNG) occur in Paraguay, but there is little justification for viewing these sympatric forms as conspecific. To my knowledge major  workers of C. innocens  have never been collected, but the minor  of C. innocens  has a markedly more slender head in full-face view than C. trapeziceps  , a more elongate mesosoma, and thicker, longer pubescence on the head and mesosoma.
