195. Formica integra  LSID  . B.M.

Formica integra  LSID  , Nyl. Form. Fr. et d'Alger. 62 (note).

Worker. Length 4 1/2 lines. - Rufo-ferruginous: abdomen black; closely resembling the F. sanguinea  LSID  , but the clypeus has not the small central notch which characterizes that species. Head large, much wider than the thorax, excavated behind; the clypeus subcarinated in the middle. Thorax narrowed posteriorly; the scale of the peduncle incrassate, its apex obtuse; head, thorax and abdomen thinly sprinkled with ferruginous hairs.

Hab. United States.

The insect described is doubtless the large form of the worker, and probably the same as that to which Dr. Nylander refers in his note: we have adopted the name which he proposed on that supposition. In the collection of the Museum are specimens from North America, agreeing in every respect with the F. sanguinea  LSID  of Europe.
