Prenolepis fustinoda Williams & LaPolla, 2016 

= Prenolepis angulinoda Chen & Zhou, 2018  , syn. nov.

Notes: The recently described Prenolepis angulinoda  bears remarkable resemblance to Prenolepis fustinoda  from Nepal. The holotypes for both have the same characteristic shape of the petiole and mesosoma in profile and an identical overall color pattern with a light brown head and mesosoma, and a dark brown to black gaster. The tarsi, trochanters, and intersegmental leg joints in both are also pale yellow and much lighter than the femora and tibiae, which are medium to dark brown in color. Furthermore, the measurements of P. angulinoda  provided by Chen &

Zhou (2018) fall within range of those recorded for P. fustinoda ( Williams & LaPolla 2016)  . This synonymy expands the native range of P. fustinoda  to also include the Guizhou province of China.
