Harpegnathos HNS , New Genus ,

Gen: Char: Jaws scythe shaped, pointed, and finely serrated; head oblong, notched behind; eyes very large situated at the anterior extremity of the head; antennae rising between the eyes; abdominal pedicle slightly raised.

I cannot class this remarkable ant as an Odontomachus HNS , and have therefore been compelled to institute a new genus for its reception ; some of the characters given may not be generic, but till other species are discovered it is difficult to say which are, and which are not of generic value.
