Xenylla corticalis Boerner, 1901
A specimen from the Boerner collection in BMNH was used for these drawings which supplement those of Boerner's original description and later of Axelson (1907, pl.V, Figs. 12-14).
Notes: The structural detail of the furcula indicates a spatulate shape with a distinct internal lamella for the mucro which is not distinctly separated from the dens. Ant IV has four subapical curved sense rods, an apical sensory knob in a pit and numerous simple setae.
