Subgenus definition - Myrmoxygenys Emery (1925b: 70)

{short description of image}Monotypic Camponotus caesar, although the "subspecies" imperator may well merit separation as a separate species; apparently monomorphic, with large worker only; head widest anteriorly, rounded posterior of the eyes in an ogee curve; narrow posterior articulation; manidbles with five teeth, the apical tooth elongated and sharp.
Emery's (1925b) subgenus definition is at {original description}.
