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

  • alluaudi. Oligomyrmex alluaudi Santschi, 1913e: 459 (diagnosis in key) (s.w.) KENYA. [Also described as new by Santschi, 1914b: 81 (s.w., descriptions).] Combination in Carebara: Fernández, 2004a: 235. Senior synonym of kenyensis (unnecessary replacement name): Bolton, 1995b: 298. Current subspecies: nominal plus cataractae. See also: Weber, 1950a: 3.
  • kenyensis. Oligomyrmex kenyensis Ettershank, 1966: 123. Unnecessary replacement name for alluaudi Santschi, 1914b: 81, hence junior synonym of alluaudi: Bolton, 1995b: 299.
