Overview

Comprehensive Description

Dorylus (Alaopone) conradti Emery HNS

Five soldiers and ten smaller workers from Niangara (Lang and Chapin), taken from the stomach of a frog (Hemisus marmoratum), agree perfectly with Emery's description and figures of the types from Togo, except that the largest workers measure only 4.5 to 5 mm., whereas Emery's specimens attained a length of (3.5 mm. The soldier is easily recognized by the coarsely punctate thorax and the very elongate head, which, with the closed mandibles, is nearly twice as long as broad.

Taxonomic Treatment

Santschi, F., 1926:
 Differe du type (d'apres sa description) par sa couleur plus foncee, d'un jaune brunatre, ou brun jaunatre. Tete plus allongee, son bord posterieur plus profondement echancre. Le sillon frontal est large- ment interrompu. La dent sous petiolaire spiniforme. Pilosite du gastre extremement courte. Le dessus du mesoepinotum est aussi sculpte et submat que le pronotum chez les grandes ouvrieres de 7,5 mm. avec l'intervalle des points lisse vers les sutures. Pour le reste comme chez le type.
  Cote d'Ivoire Bingerville (L. Berland) Recue melangee a Dorylus spininodis Em. avec cette mention: Nuisible au semis d'Alaea guineensis.
