Nomenclature

The following information is derived from Barry Bolton's Online Catalogue of the Ants of the World.

  • nigriventris. Formica nigriventris Spinola, 1851a: 239 (w.) CHILE. [Junior primary homonym of Formica nigriventris Guérin-Méneville, 1831, pl. 8, fig. 4 (now in Leptomyrmex).] First available replacement name: atriventris Smith, F. 1858b: 51, designated by Bolton, 1995b: 220. Combination in Melophorus (Lasiophanes): Emery, 1895i: 16; in Lasiophanes: Wheeler, W.M. 1935c: 70. Senior synonym of atriventris: Mayr, 1863: 412; Snelling & Hunt, 1976: 107; of dichrous: Emery, 1893h: 2; Dalla Torre, 1893: 190; of negrensis, rufoniger: Kusnezov, 1952c: 94.
  • atriventris. Formica atriventris Smith, F. 1858b: 51 (w.) CHILE. Earliest junior synonym of Formica nigriventris Spinola, 1851a: 239 [Junior primary homonym of Formica nigriventris Guérin-Méneville, 1831, pl. 8, fig. 4 (now in Leptomyrmex).], hence first available replacement name for nigriventris Spinola: Bolton, 1995b: 220 (see there for other synonymy, etc.).
  • dichrous. Lasius dichrous Roger, 1863a: 164 (w.) CHILE. Forel, 1886f: 208 (q.). Junior synonym of nigriventris: Emery, 1893h: 2; Dalla Torre, 1893: 190.

  • rufoniger. Acanthomyops (Chthonolasius) rufoniger Donisthorpe, 1933c: 537 (w.) ARGENTINA. Combination in Lasiophanes: Wheeler, W.M. 1935c: 70; Donisthorpe, 1937a: 628. Junior synonym of nigriventris: Kusnezov, 1952c: 94.
