Nomenclature

The following information is derived from Barry Bolton's New General Catalogue, a catalogue of the world's ants.

  • laboriosa. Crematogaster laboriosa Smith, F. 1874: 407 (w.) JAPAN. [Junior primary homonym of laboriosus Smith, F. 1860b: 109, above.] Wheeler, W.M. 1928d: 109 (m.); Imai, 1966: 119 (k.). Combination in C. (Acrocoelia): Emery, 1922e: 143; in C. (Crematogaster): Bolton, 1995b: 166. Synonym of nawai which is hence first available replacement name: Onoyama, 1998: 230.
  • nawai. Crematogaster auberti var. nawai Ito, 1914: 41 (w.) JAPAN. Combination in C. (Acrocoelia): Emery, 1922e: 143. Raised to species: Emery, 1922e: 143. Subspecies of laboriosa: Santschi, 1930c: 263. Raised to species; synonym of and hence first available replacement name for laboriosa Smith, F. 1874: 407 [junior primary homonym of laboriosus Smith, F. 1860b: 109]: Onoyama, 1998: 230.
