The taxonomomic placement of this genus has been uncertain but Ward et al. (2016) places it within the Formicinae (but unplaced to tribe).



This taxon is known from Fushun amber, Liaoning, China (Ypresian, Early Eocene).



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

  • CURTIPALPULUS [incertae sedis in Formicidae (probably Dolichoderinae)]
    • Curtipalpulus Hong, 2002: 612. Type-species: †Curtipalpulus eocenicus, by original designation.
