Crematogaster (Oxygyne) tumidula Emery 

Crematogaster tumidula Emery 1900: 689  . Syntypes, 2 workers from INDONESIA: Pangherang-Pisang, Sumatra (E. Modigliani) ( MCSN) [examined]. Combination in C. ( Physocrema  ) by Emery, 1922: 140; Donisthorpe, 1941: 226.

Remarks. Examination of syntype workers in MCSN reveals that tumidula  does not belong to the subgenus Physocrema  . Characteristic features include: frontal carinae not developed; anterior clypeal margin not concave; metapleural gland orifice slit-shaped; petiole broader anteriorly. These features are characteristic of the subgenus Oxygyne  and we consider C. tumidula  to be referred to that subgenus.
