@peterslingsby @ferox_formicae @ponerinecat @geechartier This is not C. dolichoderoides. Subgenus Karavaievia species lack the rounded mesosoma, and have much more broad and circular head, not a tapered one like this Tanaemyrmex. compare with http://www.antbase.net/new-species/may-2007/camponotus-dolichoderoides-lateral-big.html
