Cataulacus erinaceus Stitz  HNS 

Text Figure 46 Stanleyville, [[worker]]; Risimu, [[worker]] (Lang and Chapin). The collection contains many workers of this large and beautiful species, originally described and figured by Stitz from the Cameroon and Spanish Guinea. Forel many years ago gave me a specimen labelled " Cataulacus princeps  HNS  Emery" and has himself referred to it under that name, winch seems to exist only in manuscript. Lang and Chapin found this ant running up and down large trees.
