return to key {link to the Hymenoptera Name Server}Type location Zaïre (Cremastogaster Wasmanni n. sp., Santschi, 1910c: 376, illustrated, worker; corrected by Santschi, 1918), collected at Sankuru by Luja
worker only described (see Bolton, 1995) .


{Crematogaster wasmanni}Santschi's (1910c) description is at {original description}.


{Crematogaster wasmanni} The photomontage of the holotype worker is collated from http://www.antweb.org/specimen.do?name=casent0912631.

Thsi appears to be very similar in size and form to the the media 2 and minor workers from Benin that I show below.
