Comments. Described from two imprints from Kleinkembs, Haut-Rhin, France (early Oligocene), both without head and wing venation. The poor preservation of these imprints does not permit the assignment of these ants to any living or fossil genus, so we propose to regard these specimens as Formicidae  incertae sedis.
