  • Camponotus subpilus Shattuck, Steve, 2005, Zootaxa 903: 13-16.

Diagnosis

Diagnosis (minor worker). Enlarged hairs on pronotum present but limited to a band along the central 1 / 3 of its width; dorsal surface of head with scattered, widely spaced pubescence; mesonotum weakly arched and dorsum of mesosoma forming a shallow arch with the propodeum relatively high; dorsum of gaster the same colour as the mesosoma.

Description

Description (minor worker). Posterolateral margin of head angular, the dorsal surface weakly convex, the lateral surface weakly concave, a ridge running from the eye to the posterolateral corner. Petiolar node low, block­like, its dorsal surface broadly convex. Individual erect hairs scattered on dorsum of mesosoma, petiole and gaster; enlarged yellow hairs present on central one­third of pronotum; pubescence thin and sparse across entire body. Colour black, gaster black with a small pale yellow spots on the anterolateral corners of the second tergite, legs dark red­black.


Measurements. Minor worker (n= 3): CI 87–89, HL 1.89–2.07mm, HW 1.67– 1.85mm, ML 3.20–3.30mm, MTL 2.21–2.24mm, SI 131–151, SL 2.43–2.57mm. Material Examined. Holotype worker and 2 worker paratypes from PT. Freeport Concession, Wapoga camp, 3,800ft., 3 ° 14 ’S136 ° 57 ’E, Irian Jaya, Indonesia, 29 April 1998, R. R. Snelling, montane primary rainforest, foragers on vegetation (holotype and 1paratype in LACM, 1paratype in ANIC).

Discussion

Comments. The single known collection of this species consisted of workers foraging on vegetation in a rainforest. It is presumably arboreal nesting.
