Taxonomic history

Combination in Camponotus: Emery, 1895d PDF: 337
[Unresolved junior secondary homonym of Camponotus americanus Mayr, 1862 (Bolton, 1995b: 85).]
Unidentifiable taxon; incertae sedis in Camponotus: Bolton, 1995b: 85
[Note: Emery, 1895d PDF: 337 and Wheeler, 1902g PDF: 19, suspected this name was cognate with Camponotus marginatus. Emery, 1925d PDF: 117 provisionally synonymised it with Camponotus minutus. Smith, 1951c PDF: 845 and Smith, 1979: 1432, dubiously place it near Camponotus nearcticus.]
