return to key {link to the Hymenoptera Name Server}Type locality South Africa (Camponotus Bianconii n. sp., Emery, 1895h: 52, major, holotype only); major only described (see Bolton, 1995) .

Emery's (1895h) description is at {original description}. Arnold's (1922: 652) translation is at {original description}. The description makes comparison with Camponotus bertolonii, also described by Emery (19895h) but that is placed in the subgenus Paramyrmablys. and with sight of the Antweb images it is clear bianconii also is a Paramyrmablys (here, 2013).
