3. Myrmecia simillima  HNS  . B.M.

Worker. Length 7 lines.-This species is very like M. forficata  HNS  , of which possibly it may be a variety; but it is more coarsely sculptured; the striation is longitudinally divergent on the prothorax, and irregularly roughened transversely on the meso- and metathorax; in M. forficata  HNS  the prothorax has a regular transverse curved striation, that on the mesothorax and scutellum being regularly striated longitudinally; this difference in striation appears to characterize a distinct species.

Hab. Australia.
