Taxonomic history

[Sicelomyrmex: Brown & Carpenter, 1979 PDF: 423 (emendation of spelling).].
[Note: the emendation of spelling to Sicilomyrmex proposed by Brown & Carpenter, 1979 PDF: 423, may be unnecessary. In various publications Wheeler uses both Sicelomyrmex and Sicilomyrmex, with the former being the original, and also the one he used in his 1929a review of the group. It may be that the genus was originally named for the Sicels (one of the original tribes of Sicily), rather than after the island itself. In consequence the maintenance of the original orthography is recommended here.].
