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

    • Status as species: Bolton, 1987: 422 (redescription); Bolton, 1995b: 263.
  • arnoldi. Syllophopsis arnoldi Santschi, 1921c: 120, fig. 2d,e (w.) SOUTH AFRICA.
    • [Misspelled genus as Syllopsis.]

Taxonomic Notes

As the replacement name jonesi was proposed before 1960 (when both arnoldi taxa were included in Monomorium), the replacement name retains validity under ICZN Art. 59.3. Therefore the priority awarded by Ward, et al. 2015: 73, is incorrect.]
