Forel's (1891b) description is at {original description} (illustration unavailable).

From the remarks by Emery (1893c) on alluaudi, from the Canary Islands, and Crematogaster inermis, lacking in propodeal spines or teeth. I have separated the mainland forms with distinct short propodeal teeth off as a distinct species Crematogaster marnoi (light brown from Sudan) and Crematogaster acis (dark brown, with more prominent propodeal teeth) from West Africa.
