Taxonomic History (provided by Barry Bolton, 2023)

Ponera pedunculata Smith, 1858a PDF: 96, pl. 6, fig. 25 (w.) BRAZIL (Rio de Janeiro). Neotropic. Primary type information: Type-material: holotype worker. Type-locality: Brazil: Rio (de Janeiro), Constancia (no collector’s name). Type-depository: BMNH. Type notes: Another specimen in BMNH, previously indicated as “type”, is labelled “Ega. 58/6” (= Brazil: Tefé) and therefore is not type-material. A single specimen in OXUM has “pedunculata” on a label but no other data. Both these specimens match the holotype of Neoponera pedunculata. AntCat AntWiki HOL
