Weber (1938) described T. jamaicensis antiguensisHNS based on a “dozen” workers taken on Long Island, Antigua, British West Indies, in May 7, 1936, by Mr. H. E. Box, in “mound nest on ground.” Weber compared these specimens with “topotypes” of T. jamaicensisHNS and “cotypes” of its subspecies. We examined two T. jamaicensis antiguensisHNS “cotypes” (syntypes) deposited in the MZSP and noticed that both workers lack the main diagnostic feature of TrachymyrmexHNS of the JamaicensisHNS group, the posteriorly opened antennal scrobe. We believe that these specimens actually belong to a species of the Trachymyrmex Urichi group, to be dealt with in a forthcoming paper.
