Taxonomic History (provided by Barry Bolton, 2022)

Pheidole triconstricta Forel, 1886b PDF: xlv (s.) ARGENTINA (Buenos Aires). Neotropic. Primary type information: Primary type material: lectotype major worker (by designation of Wilson, 2003a: 241). Primary type locality: Argentina: Buenos Aires (ex coll. Saussure). Primary type depository: MHNG. Type notes: 1) Wilson, 2003a: 241, also designates a paralectotype minor worker, but this caste is not mentioned in the original description; perhaps only a single major worker was originally represented. 2) Wilson, 2003a: 241, also cites MCZC as a depository.
