psymanum have a dense pelt of elongate fine soft hairs, and a
high postpetiole with an abrupt vertical posterior face, the latter
species also has no propodeal teeth. This species is yellow and psymanum
is mid-brown (Bolton, 1980: 349, illustrated).
Wheeler (1922) described how Bequaert found a specimen
Zaïre, from the domatia of a Cuviera, other swellings were
occupied by Axinidris denticulatum (as Engramma denticulatum;
see also Bequaert, 1922, p 492). Bolton himself collected it in Ghana,
at CRIG, but gave no details (Bolton, 1980), he also discovered a
distinctive specimen which matched the label details but clearly was
not meressei - that he named as Tetramorium
