The small yellow Crematogaster  HNS  on Cuba share the general habitus of minutissima  HNS  from Florida. They differ in that the dorsal pilosity is more like C. flavomicrops  HNS  , relatively short, scruffy-looking, and not in three differentiable rows (although humeral setae are longer than the rest). The pronotum is completely smooth and shining.
