Taxonomic history

Replacement name for Syllophopsis arnoldi: Santschi, 1921c PDF: 120. [Junior secondary homonym of Monomorium arnoldi: Forel, 1913a PDF: 137.].
[Note: as the replacement name Syllophopsis jonesi was proposed before 1960 (when both arnoldi taxa were included in Monomorium), the replacement name retains validity under ICZN Art. 59.3. Therefore the priority awarded by Ward et al., 2015 10.1111/syen.12090 PDF: 73, is incorrect.].
Status as species: Bolton, 1987 PDF: 422 (redescription); Bolton, 1995b: 263.
