    • A small note: In this thread we encounter reply no. 8. This is a cleaned-up version of AntWiki. All that is in it came from AntWiki. We only did make Ward, et al. 2015 ("2014") a uniform notation and did keep the synonymy like it stood in AntWiki. But we don't agree with them. I am a follower of Seifert, et al. 2016 in that I keep Teleutomyrmex, Anergates,... as separate genera and not as synonyms under Tetramorium... That is all...
    • If the authors in 2015 went on to accept Strongylognathus as the oldest name....

      Strongylognathus Mayr, 1853

      For our species all the names used would become:

      Strongylognathus inquilinum (Ward, Brady, Fisher & Schultz, 2015)
      = Strongylognathus schneideri (Kutter, 1950)
      Strongylognathus kutteri (Tinaut, 1990), still needs a new name
      Strongylognathus seiferti (Kiran & Karaman, 2017)
      Strongylognathus buschingeri (Lapeva-Gjonova, 2017)
    • In López, J. R., Martínez, A. B., 2011, “Notas Científicas: Nueva cita de Teleutomyrmex kutteri Tinaut, 1990 (Hym., Formicidae) para la Península Ibérica. New record of Teleutomyrmex kutteri Tinaut, 1990 (Hym., Formicidae) from the Iberian Peninsula.” Boletín de la Sociedad Entomológica Aragonesa (S.E.A.), nº. 49, p. 206. sea-entomologia.org/Publicacio…rmexkutteriFormicidae.pdf the most important passage is:


      "The funiculus of this specimen has nine pieces, where the first and the second are very similar in length, and both more long than the third. This extra-long segment comes from the fusion of the second and third. This phenomenon occurs in all the specimens captured on at least one of the antennas (in the half of them affect the two antennas).
      The cephalic surface is smooth and shiny, except for light reticulations near the compound eyes, barely perceptible. In T. schneideri this cross-linking between the eyes and the base of the antennas is much more obvious.
      Another major difference between T. kutteri and T. schneideri is the length of the silks of the petiole. An average of 18.9 and 33.3 microns respectively. In the female that was measured under the SEM (x370 increases), the result was 19.7 ± 1.1micras (n = 15), a figure very similar to T. kutteri."
    • Two reactions on Ward et al. 2015 ("2014"):

    • Sometimes, even general names change or are different than intended. Just like Teleutomyrmex.

      First part means: das Ende, die Vollendung.
      Last part means: die Ameise.

      Since Brun, 1951-1952, everybody in the German hemisphere calls the ant: die Endameise.
      Kutter wanted to call it, and did so in his 1950 article: die Grenzameise.

      In English it always was the final ant...
