Nomenclature

The following information is derived from Barry Bolton's New General Catalogue, a catalogue of the world's ants.

  • ACROCOELIA [junior synonym of Crematogaster (Crematogaster)]
    • Acrocoelia Mayr, 1853a: 147. Type-species: Acrocoelia ruficeps (junior synonym of Formica scutellaris), by subsequent designation of Wheeler, W.M. 1911f: 158.
    • Acrocoelia junior synonym of Crematogaster: Mayr, 1863: 404; Wheeler, W.M. 1911f: 158; Wheeler, W.M. 1922a: 828.
    • Acrocoelia revived from synonymy as subgenus of Crematogaster: Emery, 1922e: 140.
    • Acrocoelia junior synonym of Crematogaster: Buren, 1959: 126.
    • Acrocoelia revived from synonymy as genus: Soulié, 1964: 398.
    • Acrocoelia junior synonym of Crematogaster: Brown, 1973b: 178; Blaimer 2012: 52. [The type-species of Acrocoelia and Crematogaster are synonymous, the generic synonymy is therefore absolute.]
