Camponotus (Paramyrmamblys) bifossus Santschi

return to key {link to the Hymenoptera Name Server} Type location South Africa (Camponotus (Colobopsis) bifossus n. sp., Santschi, 1917b: 293, major) Cape of Good Hope, Peringuey, 1905 - no images on Anteweb (September 2014); major only known (see Bolton, 1995). I have placed this in Paramyrmablys rather than in Colobopsis, as listed in Bolton (1995) .

Santschi's (1917b) description is at {original description}. Arnold (1924: 707) gave a translation; this is at {original description}.
