- aeyade. Monomorium aeyade Collingwood & Agosti, 1996: 341 (w.) OMAN.
- Neotype (designated by Sharaf, Al Dhafer et al., 2018: 6), worker, Wadi Aeyad, Oman, 20 March 1990, MD Gallagher, CASENT0922329, World Museum Liverpool.
Sharaf, Al Dhafer et al. (2018): This species was originally described based on two worker specimens, the holotype and one paratype. During an extensive search in the WMLC collection it was not possible to locate the holotype, which is presumably lost. However, the paratype specimen was available for examination and we designate it as a neotype to unequivocally ascertain the identity of the species.
