Taxonomic History (provided by Barry Bolton, 2023)

Formica villosa Fabricius, 1804 PDF: 409 (q.) SURINAME. Neotropic. Primary type information: Type-material: lectotype queen (by designation of Fernandes et al., 2014 PDF: 155). Type-locality: Suriname: Essequibo. Type-depository: ZMUC. Type notes: 1) Fernandes et al., 2014 PDF: 155, report that data on the specimen is, “Essequibo, Smidt, Mus. Sehestedt”. Original description has (in full), “Habitat in America meridionali Dom. Smidt. Mus. Dom. de Sehestedt”, without indication of caste of specimen. Essequibo is most probably the old name for part of Suriname, rather than the river of that name. 2) Zimsen, 1964 PDF: 426, reports 2 specimens in ZMUC, 1 in ZMUK. AntCat AntWiki
