Tetramorium notiale Bolton (Arnold)
Type location Zimbabwe
(Tetramorium guineense ssp striatum, Arnold, 1917: 308,
all forms - appears as a translation of T. guineense r striatum
attributed to Stitz, 1910: 144 but that is a short description of T.
guineense v cristatum, Arnold's description, see below, is
quite long and detailed, comparing the ants to the guineensis
var phasias (see lower); raised to species, with replacement
name by Bolton, 1980)
all forms described .
Note: With the
availability of type images now (April 2015) this, or at least the
Bolton "lectotype", appears to be identical to the prior published Tetramorium cristatum, if so
this is a junior synonym.
