Abstract: The Crematogaster popohana-group is reviewed and two species and one subspecies, including one new species, C. fumikoae sp. nov. are recognized. The C. popohana-group is distinguished from other Asian Crematogaster- species by the slender petiole with weakly convex sides. A key to the species based on the worker caste is also provided. Morphological features of the unique slender petiole are discussed.

Keywords: Crematogaster popohana, taxonomy, new species, petiole, South-east Asia.
