{Crematogaster kasaiensis queen} The photomontage is of a worker collected in Central African Republic, Dzanga-Sangha NP; collector Phillipe Annoyer (CAR LO). Note: this is 1.7 X larger than the type worker shown above but the overall form and colour appear to be very similar. The large queen, described by Forel (presumably associated with the workers) matches that shown below.


{Crematogaster kasaiensis queen} The photomontage is of a queen collected in Central African Republic, Dzanga-Sangha NP; collector Phillipe Annoyer (CAR GS3). Appears to match the Forel description.
