mandibles linear (Ponerinae)

The mandibles are long and straight, not triangular. They lack distinct teeth on their inner margins, but can be armed with an apical fork. Used in Antkey to separate Anochetus, Leptogenys and Odontomachus from other Ponerine genera. Anochetus and Odontomachus are referred to as trapjaw ants.
