Collingwood). Primary type depository: NHMB. Secondary type information: Secondary type material: 3 paratype workers. Secondary type localities: 1 paratype worker with same data as holotype but 3.xii.1994 (B. Tigar), 1 paratype worker U.A.E.: Buraimi, 11.iii.1995 (B. Tigar & C.A.. Collingwood), 1 paratype worker U.A.E.: al-Ain, 13.iii.2005 (C.A. Collingwood). Secondary type depository: NHMB. Secondary type specimen: CASENT0102700. Type notes: 1) A queen with the same data as the holotype is excluded from the type-series by the authors (p.430), with no reason given. 2) A worker (CASENT0102700) in CASC labelled "Holotype" is not the holotype as its date and collector information differ from that given in the description. It matches the paratype specimen with same data as holotype but 3.xii.1994 (B. Tigar).
