Taxonomic history

Combination in Monomorium (Notomyrmex): Emery, 1922c PDF: 169; in Notomyrmex: Kusnezov, 1960b PDF: 345; in Nothidris: Ettershank, 1966 PDF: 107; in Antichthonidris: Snelling, 1975 PDF: 6; in Monomorium: Fernández, 2007B: 132.
See also: Kusnezov, 1949a PDF: 431.
[Note. If the dubious combination of Monomorium bidentata [missing reference] Smith, F., [no year] in Monomorium is correct then Monomorium bidentatum Mayr, 1887 PDF becomes an unresolved junior secondary homonym of Monomorium bidentata [missing reference] Smith, F. 1858.].
