Specimens of Gnamptogenys Roger were examined or deposited in various collections, including the American Museum of Natural History (New York, New York); the Australian National Insect Collection, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (Canberra, Australia); The Natural History Museum (London, England); the California Academy of Sciences Collection (San Francisco, California); the Forestry Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Forestry (Beijing, China); and the Institut Royal des Sciences Naturelles de Belgique (Brussels, Belgium). Most morphological measurements were made using a Wild stereoscope with a Nikon double-axis positioning stage wired to an Autometronics dual-axis digital readout. A set of characters rarely used in ant taxonomy was found on the prosternum. This chapter also describes the morphology, phylogenetics, characters, and species accounts of Gnamptogenys Roger.
