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

Senior synonym of turcomanica: Kolossov, 1932: 118; Agosti, 1990b: 1490 [Agosti repeats the synonymy but incorrectly gives turcomanica seniority. Radchenko, 1997c: 435, places longipedem as a junior synonym of setipes, but longipedem has priority.] revived
