Taxonomic History (provided by Barry Bolton, 2023)

Pachycondyla bispinosa Smith, 1858a PDF: 107 (w.) INDIA. Indomalaya. Primary type information: Type-material: holotype(?) worker. Type-locality: Australia: “Hab. Australia?” (no further data). Type-depository: BMNH. Type notes: 1) Presumed holotype worker is labelled “type. Sm. Coll. 79. 32”, with no locality data on the label. There is no proof that this specimen is in fact the holotype. If the “79” refers to 1879, as is usual in old BMNH accessions, that would rule out this specimen because the holotype was collected before 1858. 2) Type-locality India, after Forel, 1886d PDF: 246; Forel, 1900f PDF: 326; Bingham, 1903 PDF: 97.
