Taxonomic history

Replacement name for Colobopsis pubescens Mayr, 1862. [Junior secondary homonym of Camponotus pubescens (Fabricius, 1775).]
[Note: an earlier senior synonym of Colobopsis pubescens Mayr, 1862, Colobopsis pilosa (Smith, 1857) (synonymy by Emery, 1900: 706), is itself a junior primary homonym (of Camponotus pilosa (Olivier, 1792)); hence Colobopsis pilosa (Smith, 1857) is unavailable as a replacement name for Colobopsis pubescens Mayr, 1862, and Colobopsis leonardi (Emery, 1889) becomes the first available name (Emery, 1921a PDF: 25).]
[Misspelled as leonadi by Jaitrong & Nabhitabhata, 2005 PDF: 15.]
