Technomyrmex (Engramma) camerunensis Emery

return to key {link to the Hymenoptera Name Server} Type location Cameroun (Technomyrmex Andrei var. camerunensis n. v., Emery, 1899: 489, illustrated, worker) collector Conradt; new status Bolton (2007: 21, illustrated, worker) .

{Technomyrmex camerunensis}Emery's (1899) description is at {original description}.

There is a conflict between the Emery (1899e) description and drawing and Bolton's separation of T. andrei and camerunensis. Emery explicitly described camerunensis as less slender, the head less elongated, the scape surpassing the occiput by one-third its own length, the profile of the propodeum with a very rounded obtuse angle. Now (2014), using the digital method of image layering the profile drawings and the type worker photographs confirms the drawings were mislabelled.  Therefore I am not including the Bolton drawing here.

Bolton's (2007) re-description, illustrated, is at {original description}.
