new variety

Camponotus (Myrmoturba) maculatus subspecies miserabilis Santschi variety pessimus  HNS  , new variety

The major worker measures only 6 to 6.5 min., the minor 5 to 5.5 min. Both agree closely with Santschi's description and figure of miserabilis  HNS  , except in their considerably smaller size. The head of the major is distinctly narrower anteriorly, the cheeks being less convex and the frontal carina? are less approximated. Sculpture, pilosity, and color very much as in miserabilis  HNS  .

Four major and five minor workers from Yakuluku (Lang and ('hapin), without further data.
