Nomenclature

The following information is derived from Barry Bolton's Online Catalogue of the Ants of the World.

  • augustei. Camponotus christophei subsp. augustei Wheeler, W.M. & Mann, 1914: 59 (s.w.) HAITI.
    • Combination in C. (Myrmeurynota): Emery, 1925b: 168.
    • Subspecies of christophei: Emery, 1925b: 168.
    • Status as species: Wheeler, W.M. 1936b: 207; Kempf, 1972a: 49; Bolton, 1995b: 87; Lubertazzi, 2019: 82.

Unless otherwise noted the text for the remainder of this section is reported from the publication that includes the original description.

Description

Worker

Major

Length 5-6 mm.

Closely resembling the preceding species in form, sculpture, pilosity and color but differing in having the petiole somewhat broader and in completely lacking the two pale bands of long appressed pubescence on the gaster.

Minor

Length 4.5-5.5 mm.

Differing from the major worker in its somewhat smaller average size, smaller head, slightly narrower thorax, less convex and more sloping epinotum, and narrower and less reflected and less angular pronotal borders. The gaster is covered uniformly with short, sparse, blunt, white pubescence, like that on the head and thorax.

Type Locality Information

Described from six major and four minor workers found running about on leaves at Petionville.

Etymology

This subspecies is dedicated to the late president of Haiti, M. Tancrede Auguste.
