The following notes on F. Smith type specimens have been provided by Barry Bolton (details):

Formica exasperata

One worker syntype in Oxford University Museum of Natural History. Labelled “SAR 2.” Although only a single specimen is present I have labelled it as a syntype, because Smith implies in the original description that more than one was present at that time.

Formica mistura

Holotype queen in Oxford University Museum of Natural History. Labelled “SAR.”
