Camponotus cinctellus Wikipedia
The somewhat shimmering, golden-hued pubescence of the gaster is characteristic of all the worker castes. On the gaster, erect bristles are limited to the posterior segments. The reddish leg colour distinguishes it from the similar but smaller C. sericeus.
It is native to eastern Africa from Eritrea to Kenya, Rwanda, the DRC, Tanzania, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and South Africa, as far south as coastal Transkei.
Two subspecies are recognized:C. c. cinctellus – type locality in Mozambique
C. c. belliceps Santschi, 1939 – type locality in the DRC
