Taxonomic History (provided by Barry Bolton, 2022)

Formica atriceps Smith, 1858a PDF: 44 (s.w.) BRAZIL (Pará). Neotropic. Primary type information: Primary type material: syntype major and minor workers (numbers not stated). Primary type locality: Brazil: Pará, Belém (no collector’s name) (by restriction of Kempf, 1972b PDF: 59). Primary type depository: BMNH. Type notes: 1) Hashmi, 1973b: 85, cites a BMNH specimen as holotype, but from Smith’s original description it is obvious that several specimens were involved. 2) Other original syntype localities: Brazil: Pará, Santarem (no collector’s name), Brazil: Rio de Janeiro (no collector’s name).
