Pseudomyrmex lizeri  (Santschi 1922 a). NEW STATUS.

Pseudomyrma flavidula  st. lizeri Santschi 1922 a: 346  .

Pseudomyrmex flavidulus lizeri (Santschi)  . Kusnezov 1953: 214.

Pseudomyrmex lizeri  is known from a pair of localities in eastern Paraguay where it is locally sympatric with the common P. flavidulus  . There is no reason to consider the two forms conspecific. In Paraguay, Pseudomyrmex lizeri  is a noticeably larger ant than P. flavidulus  and has a disproportionately broader head. I have not examined the type material of this species, but Phil Ward identified the Paraguayan specimens and concurs with a change in status for P. lizeri  (Ward, pers comm.).
