N. B. Pheidole areniphilaHNS nov. nom. (= arenicolaHNS Forel, nec Emery).

- Dans les Fourmis du Dr Schultze (Afrique sudouest), dans: Schultze, Forschungsreise in Suedafrika, Jenaische Denkschriften XVI; j'ai decrit sous le nom de Ph. arenicolaHNS une espece du desert de Kalahari, sans remarquer que ce nom avait deja ete employe par Emery pour une sous espece de la Ph. fallax MayrHNS. Je dois donc changer le nom et je l'appelle areniphilaHNS.
