Nomenclature

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

  • raptans. Eciton raptans Forel, 1911d: 395 (footnote). [Unnecessary replacement name for raptor Forel, see below.] Bruch, 1924a: 232 (q., see Bruch, 1925b: 125). Combination in Neivamyrmex: Borgmeier, 1953: 8. Subspecies of hetschkoi: Bruch, 1928: 350. Revived status as species: Santschi, 1934c: 25. Senior synonym of abstinens (unnecessary replacement name): Forel, 1913l: 213; of rebellatum: Borgmeier, 1955: 481. Junior synonym of raptor: Bolton, 1995b: 291.
  • raptor. Eciton (Acamatus) raptor Forel, 1911c: 289 (w.) BRAZIL. Combination in Neivamyrmex: Borgmeier, 1955: 481. Senior synonym of raptans (and its junior synonyms abstinens, rebellatum): Bolton, 1995b: 291. [The name raptans Forel was proposed as a replacement for raptor Forel because of the name Eciton raptor Smith, F. 1855c: 169. The last name is however an incorrect subsequent spelling, in the figure legends, of Eciton rapax Smith, F. 1855c: 163. As an incorrect subsequent spelling raptor Smith is unavailable, and therefore does not enter into homonymy.]
  • abstinens. Eciton (Acamatus) abstinens Ihering, 1912: 232. Unnecessary replacement name for, and hence junior synonym of, raptans: Forel, 1913l: 213.
  • rebellatum. Eciton (Acamatus) raptans var. rebellatum Santschi, 1934c: 25, pl. 3, figs. 4, 6, 10, 14, 19 (w.q.m.) ARGENTINA. Combination in Neivamyrmex: Borgmeier, 1953: 13. Junior synonym of raptans: Borgmeier, 1955: 481.
