Aenictus thailandianus Terayama & Kubota   Figs 3A, 4A

Non-type material examined.

Three workers from CHINA, Guizhou Province, Leigongshan, 6.VII.1988, leg. Minsheng Wang; original label in Chinese "贵州雷公山 / 1988.VII.6 /王敏生 / 中科院动物所“; (in IZAS: IOZ(E)1379709, all three workers on a single pin).

Distribution.

Guizhou, Yunnan (Fig. 6B); North Thailand, North Vietnam.

Remarks.

The three specimens of Aenictus thailandianus   from Leigong Moutain, Guizhou Province, agree well with the original description of Terayama and Kubota (1993, therein figs 11-13) and the additional descriptions and illustrations of Jaitrong and Yamane (2013, therein fig. 17 A–D). This is the so far northernmost record of Aenictus thailandianus   , which has in China only been recorded from Yunnan ( Liu et al. 2015a).
