Monomorium fasciatum Santschi - status confirmed

return to key {link to the Hymenoptera Name Server} Type location Kenya (Monomorium fasciatum n. sp., Santschi, 1920b: 10, illustrated, worker) Kilimanjaro, Reichensperger - gaster only at  http://www.antweb.org/specimenImages.do?code=casent0913581 .


{Monomorium fasciatum}Santschi's (1920b) description is at {original description}.

WORKER - TL 1.8 mm (Bolton, 1987: 388, not illustrated, worker; regarded as nomen dubium as unseen). The worker shown below from north-eastern Tanzania, close to the type location, appears to match Santschi's description in every way, including the dark transverse area of the gaster.  The only remaining part of the type is the gaster, link above, but that exactly matches that shown below.
