return to key {link to the Hymenoptera Name Server} Type location Cameroun (Cremastogaster (Oxygyne) trautweini n. sp., Viehmeyer, 1914c: 33, worker; combination in Cr. (Acrocoelia) by Emery, 1922e: 148) collected by H. Trautwein
worker only described (see Bolton, 1995: 166, where it is listed under the subgenus Crematogaster) .

Viehmeyer's (1914c) description is at {original description}. The comparison is with Cr. (Oxygyne) daisyi Forel (1901e: 376; type location Borneo) - mis-spelt by Viehmeyer as Cr. daysii. Emery (1922e) gave it as a variety of Cr. santschii but it is solely as an entry in his synoptic catalogue.
