I was wandering yesterday and today in AntWiki and AntWeb and made some (late) observations about the hosts of some Pheidole species. So I did put them in my list and made some comments about them. Also I made remarks about the changes of genus as ", by" and then the name and date from the change. Hope you enjoy it!

P.s. the reference Casadei-Ferreira et al., 2020 refers to:

Casadei-Ferreira, A.; Economo, E. P.; Feitosa, R. M. 2020. Additions to the taxonomy of Pheidole (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) from the southern grasslands of Brazil. Revista Brasileira de Entomologia 64 (4):21 pp.

A remark about synonymy

Anergates friedlandi Creighton, 1934 is now a synonym from Anergates atratulus (Schenck, 1852), more precisely an introduced form in North Americe. So, the name is Anergates atratulus (Schenck, 1852) or, if you follow Ward et al. 2015 ("2014"), Tetramorium atratulum (Schenck, 1852)...

Synonyms of host species

- T. caespitum (Linnaeus, 1758) (= Formica caespitum Linnaeus, 1758)
- T. impurum (Förster, 1850) (= Myrmica impura Förster, 1850)
- P. megacephala (Fabricius, 1793) (= Formica megecephala Fabricius, 1793)
- P. megacephala (Fabricius, 1793) subsp. melancholica Santschi, 1912 was originally described as P. punctulata Mayr, 1866 st. melancholica Santschi, 1912
- The host species P. strobeli Emery, 1906 was, in 1922, originally described as a subspecies of an other species, nl.

The species P. strobeli Emery, 1906 was revived from synonymy (with P. nitidula Emery, 1888) and the subspecies was synonymized with it in Casadei-Ferreira et al., 2020.
- P. obscurior Forel, 1886 was revived from synonymy with the 1 page older P. susannae Forel, 1886 and this in Casadei-Ferreira et al., 2020.

- The host species P. strobeli Emery, 1906 was, in 1922, originally described as a subspecies of an other species, nl. P. nitidula Emery, 1888 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909 (= the protonym P. perversa Forel, 1908 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909) and known as P. strobeli Emery, 1906 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909 since Santschi, 1916. The species P. strobeli Emery, 1906 was revived from synonymy (with P. nitidula Emery, 1888) and the subspecies was synonymized with it in Casadei-Ferreira et al., 2020.

This is changed into a better version:

- The host species P. strobeli Emery, 1906 was, in 1922, described as a subspecies of an other species, nl. P. nitidula Emery, 1888 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909 (a much used junior synonym of the older P. perversa Forel, 1908 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909) and known as P. strobeli Emery, 1906 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909 since Santschi, 1916. The species P. strobeli Emery, 1906 was revived from synonymy (with P. nitidula Emery, 1888 since Wilson, 2003) and the subspecies was synonymized with it in Casadei-Ferreira et al., 2020.

Re: The extreme, workerless inquilines.

Beitragvon Teleutotje » Samstag 6. November 2021, 14:43

I made a few changes in the lists.

First in "The extreme, workerless inquilines":

"T. moravicum Kratochvil, 1941"
I did change this. "Kratochvil" or "Kratochvil, in Novák & Sadil, 1941" you don't see much, most it is "Novák & Sadil". So I made this:
"T. moravicum [Kratochvil, in] Novák & Sadil, 1941"

And I made "- The host species P. strobeli Emery, 1906 was, in 1922, described as a subspecies of an other species, nl. P. nitidula Emery, 1888 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909 (a much used junior synonym of the older P. perversa Forel, 1908 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909) and known as P. strobeli Emery, 1906 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909 since Santschi, 1916. The species P. strobeli Emery, 1906 was revived from synonymy (with P. nitidula Emery, 1888 since Wilson, 2003) and the subspecies was synonymized with it in Casadei-Ferreira et al., 2020." more understandible, nl. this:
"- The host species P. strobeli Emery, 1906 was known, during much of its history, as a subspecies of an other species, nl. P. nitidula Emery, 1888 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909 (a much used junior synonym of the older P. perversa Forel, 1908 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909) and known, in 1922, for a while as P. strobeli Emery, 1906 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909, this since Santschi, 1916. The species P. strobeli Emery, 1906 was revived from synonymy (with P. nitidula Emery, 1888 since Wilson, 2003) and the subspecies was synonymized with it in Casadei-Ferreira, Economo, Feitosa, 2020."

And an addition to the references of Anergates, but separate from them:
Schlick-Steiner, B. C., Steiner, F. M., Sanetra, M., Heller, G., Stauffer, C., Christian, E., Seifert, B., 2005, “Queen size dimorphism in the ant Tetramorium moravicum (Hymenoptera, Formicidae): morphometric, molecular genetic and experimental evidence.” Insectes Sociaux, vol. 52, p. 186-193.
Schulz, A., 1996, “Tetramorium rhenanum nov. spec. vom "Mittleren Rheintal" in Deutschland (Hymenoptera: Formicidae).” Linzer Biologische Beiträge, vol. 28, p. 391-412.

And a few little things, more uniform....

For the rest a few changes in literature lists.

I removed Passera from the list "not in the lists" to the "Teleutomyrmex list", so it includes now 103 references.

I changed the year in one of the "Teleutomyrmex list" references to the correct year, nl. 2006 i.s.o. 2005.

I included four references in the "not in the lists", nl. two Dutch and two French, all from Belgium.

I did put in the page numbers in the Huber reference.
