I read a paper that stated C. wettereri had been found in the US, but the only specimen collect was collect on a South American island. Has anyone seen them in the US or know anything about them being in the US?

Here's the AntWeb page for them https://www.antweb.o...=casent0914432

That species doesn’t appear to even exist. I just looked it up and found nothing.

I managed to find something the only reference to it on the internet. Not a valid taxon name. 


Um, uh, Ants!

The link, unfortunately, has no specimen but "Specimen:casent0914432  is not in the AntWeb database."

Yes this is a necro-post, but I figured out where they are in the US. They were collect on one of the Channel Islands.
