status

NEW STATUS

Pseudomyrmex lizeri (Santschi  HNS  1922a). NEW STATUS.

Pseudomyrma flavidula st. lizeri Santschi  HNS  1922a: 346.

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

Pseudomyrmex lizeri  HNS  is known from a pair of localities in eastern Paraguay where it is locally sympatric with the common P. flavidulus  HNS  . There is no reason to consider the two forms conspecific. In Paraguay, Pseudomyrmex lizeri  HNS  is a noticeably larger ant than P. flavidulus  HNS  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  HNS  (Ward, pers comm.).
