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

  • ruficeps. Formica ruficeps Smith, F. 1857a: 54 (s.w.) BORNEO. [Junior primary homonym of ruficeps Fabricius, above.] Replacement name: gilviceps Roger, 1863b: 3.
  • gilviceps. Camponotus gilviceps Roger, 1863b: 3. Replacement name for Formica ruficeps Smith, F. 1857a: 54. [Junior primary homonym of Formica ruficeps Fabricius, 1804: 404.] Forel, 1886f: 171 (q.). Combination in C. (Myrmotarsus): Emery, 1925b: 135. Junior synonym of mistura: Emery, 1925b: 135. Revived from synonymy: Donisthorpe, 1932c: 443. Senior synonym of smithi (unnecessary second replacement name for ruficeps Smith, F.): Bolton, 1995b: 102.
  • smithi. Camponotus (Myrmotarsus) smithi Donisthorpe, 1932c: 443. Unnecessary (second) replacement name for ruficeps Smith, F. 1857a: 54 (junior homonym) and hence junior synonym of gilviceps Roger, 1863b: 3, the first replacement name: Bolton, 1995b: 124.

The following notes on F. Smith type specimens have been provided by Barry Bolton (details):
