The following information is derived from Barry Bolton's New General Catalogue, a catalogue of the world's ants.
- pompiloides. Ponera pompiloides Smith, F. 1857a: 69 (m.) BORNEO. Combination in Leptogenys: Donisthorpe, 1932c: 448.
Type-series males equivocal. Type-locality of this taxon is Borneo (Sarawak). A single male in Oxford University Museum of Natural History, labelled “Sing.” (= Singapore) bears a Donisthorpe type-label. A second male, in The Natural History Museum and also labelled “Sing.”, is identical and appears to be from the same series. Both species more or less fit the very poor original description, but their identity as type-material must be in doubt as the locality is wrong. Or, just possibly, Smith recorded the locality incorrectly.
