Taxonomic history

Junior synonym of Solenopsis saevissima: Wilson, 1952b PDF: 55.
Revived from synonymy, raised to species and senior synonym of Solenopsis invicta: Bolton, 1995b: 391.
[Trager, 1991 PDF: 173 wrongly gave Solenopsis wagneri as an unavailable name, incorrectly citing its original notation as Solenopsis saevissima electra wagneri, and referring its material to Solenopsis invicta. But Solenopsis wagneri is available, with the original notation cited above, and has priority over Solenopsis invicta.].
Solenopsis invicta conserved over Solenopsis wagneri because of usage, in accord with ICZN (1999): Shattuck et al., 1999: 27.
