Nomenclature

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

  • longipedem. Formica longipedem Eichwald, 1841: 224 (w.) TURKMENISTAN. Senior synonym of turcomanica: Kolossov, 1932: 118; Agosti, 1990b: 1490 [Agosti repeats the synonymy but incorrectly gives turcomanica seniority. Radchenko, 1997c: 435, places longipedem as a junior synonym of setipes, but longipedem has priority.] revived
  • dschambulica. Cataglyphis setipes subsp. dschambulica Tarbinsky, 1976: 200 (w.) KYRGYZSTAN. Junior synonym of setipes: Radchenko, 1997c: 435.
