Crematogaster excisa subspecies impressa (Emery) variety aglaea Santschi  HNS  , new variety

"Worker. - Black; mandibles, funiculi and tarsi reddish brown. Dorsum of pronotum very densely punctate as in the typical impressa  HNS  (Emery), the longitudinal rugae being feebly or not at all indicated. Head and thorax narrower. Premesonotal impression feebler as in euphrosyne  HNS  , with a small carina on the front of the mesonotum, which is sharply marginate, less concave than in andrei  HNS  (Forel) and more so than in impressa  HNS  (Emery). Basal surface of the epinotum scarcely broader than the petiole. Spines almost as long as the interval between their bases. Anterior angles of petiole truncated as in andrei  HNS  . Otherwise like impressa  HNS  (Emery). "Dimbroko, Ivory Coast (Le Moult).

"In impressa  HNS  the funiculi are brownish black and in andrei  HNS  the mesonotal carina is lacking." (Santschi)
