Nomenclature

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

  • perminuta. Formica perminuta Buckley, 1866: 162 (w.) U.S.A. Combination in Brachymyrmex: Emery, 1895c: 338; in Prenolepis: Mayr, 1876: 78; Wheeler, W.M. 1902f: 21. Unidentifiable taxon; incertae sedis in Paratrechina: Bolton, 1995b: 315. [Trager, 1984b: 119 suggests possible synonymy with arenivaga, a junior name, but the original description of perminuta does not contain sufficient data to justify this.]
