Tapinoma menozzii Donisthorpe

return to key {link to the Hymenoptera Name Server} Type location Zimbabwe (Donisthorpe 1936e: 526, worker); worker only described (see Bolton, 1995) .

Donisthorpe's (1936e) description is at {original description}.

The description appears to be a very close match (albeit slightly bigger) to that of Tapinoma longiceps Wheeler; which I have given a new status as a full species.
