Taxonomic history

Cerapachys in Myrmicinae: Smith, 1861b PDF: 47 [Myrmicidae]; Smith, 1871a PDF: 329 [Myrmicidae].
Cerapachys as genus: all authors.
[Orapachys: incorrect subsequent spelling by Forel, 1893b PDF: 162.]
[Ceratopachys: unjustified emendation of spelling by Schulz, 1906 PDF: 155.]
[Note: Ceratopachys was treated as a junior synonym of Cerapachys by Wheeler, 1922: 755; Hölldobler & Wilson, 1990: 10; Bolton, 1995b: 24; Tang et al., 1995: 25; Bolton, 2003 PDF: 141; Borowiec, 2016 10.3897/zookeys.608.9427 PDF: 15, 90, but is best regarded as an unjustified emendation of spelling.]
