NOTE - The Antbase list of types recorded from Sudan [http://osuc.biosci.ohio-state.edu/hymenoptera/typelox?ctry_name=Sudan] is erroneous as it includes a number of species with the type location wrongly given as "Sudan" by Bolton (1995), whereas the locations were in "French Sudan" - e.g. now Mali, Chad, Mauritania, etc

These species are - Aenictus furculatus Santschi ssp andrieui Santschi - Mali; Aenictus humeralis Santschi - Mali; Aenictus luteus Emery ssp moestus Santschi - Mali; Camponotus (Orthonotomyrmex) sericeus (Fabricius) ssp euchrous Santschi - "French Sudan"; Crematogaster (Sphaerocrema) angusticeps Santschi - Mali; Crematogaster (Sphaerocrema) longiceps Santschi - Mali; Monomorium areniphilum (Santschi) j syn lepineyi Santschi - Mauritania; Pheidole andrieui Santschi - Mali; Pheidole decarinata Santschi - Mali

The type location for Aenictus soudanicus Santschi is Koulouba, Mali, but it is recorded also from modern Sudan.
