3. Carebara vidua  HNS  . B.M.

Male. Length 7 lines. - Head, thorax and nodes of the pe- tiole black; the antennae, mandibles, legs and abdomen ochra- ceous, covered with a thin, short, pale pubescence, which is most dense on the head and thorax; the mesothorax with a central raised line anteriorly, and very closely punctured; wings brown, with the nervures dark ferruginous, the posterior wings palest. Abdomen oblong-ovate, slightly narrowed posteriorly; the first node of the abdomen, viewed above, rounded, the second trans- verse.

Hab. Port Natal.

The specimen described has its antennae broken, but of one, eleven joints remain: I have little doubt of two being broken off.
