The following information is derived from Barry Bolton's New General Catalogue, a catalogue of the world's ants.
- brunnipes. Eubothroponera brunnipes Clark, 1938: 361, fig. 3 (w.) AUSTRALIA. Combination in Platythyrea: Brown, 1975: 8.
- Syntype, worker(s), Reevesby Island, South Australia, Australia, Museum Victoria, Melbourne.
Brown (1975) provided the following: P. brunnipes, inadequately described by Clark from Reevesby Island in the Sir Joseph Banks Group, off the coast of South Australia, is also called "castaneous," a color term that Clark consistently used for tints of a much lighter color than is usually associated with that term by other authors. In fact, ants described as "castaneous" by Clark would usually be called "ferruginous" or "reddish yellow" by other authors. Clark said that the antennae, mandibles, and legs of brunnipes were "brown," but his description of the sculpture and pilosity is so sketchy that we cannot say whether the species is related to dentinodis or to turneri; maybe it is to neither.
