Taxonomic history

Combination in Neivamyrmex: Borgmeier, 1955 PDF: 481.
Senior synonym of Neivamyrmex raptans (and its junior synonyms Neivamyrmex abstinens, Neivamyrmex rebellatum): Bolton, 1995b: 291.
[The name Neivamyrmex raptans [missing reference] Forel, [no year] was proposed as a replacement for Neivamyrmex raptor [missing reference] Forel, [no year] because of the name Eciton raptor Smith, 1855c PDF: 169. The last name is however an incorrect subsequent spelling, in the figure legends, of Eciton rapax Smith, 1855c PDF: 163. As an incorrect subsequent spelling Neivamyrmex raptor [missing reference] Smith, [no year] is unavailable, and therefore does not enter into homonymy.].
