They synonymised Hypoponera
imatongica and, provisionally, Hypoponera
abyssinica under jeanneli. If my recognition of a
worker from Tanzania is right the abyssinica
form is significantly darker and shinier.
They claim also that the cross-ribbing at the base of
cinctus is are strongly developed and conspicuous; if so, why are such
ribs not visible in their photographs?
