Taxonomic History (provided by Barry Bolton, 2022)

Solenopsis parva Mayr, 1868b PDF: 175 (w.) ARGENTINA (Mendoza). Neotropic. Primary type information: Primary type material: holotype (?) worker. Primary type locality: Argentina: Mendoza, mensibus aestivis (“months of summer”), xii.1865 to iii.1866 (Str.). Primary type depositories: NHMW. Type notes: No indication of number of specimens is given. The original description implies that only a single specimen was present (= holotype); therefore the designation of a lectotype by Pacheco & Mackay, 2013 PDF: 251, may be redundant.
