Tetraponera allaborans -group: new synonymy of Malagasy species

The T. allaborans -group is represented in the Malagasy region by about 30 species (10 described), which form a single clade ( Chomicki et al. 2015; Ward, unpubl.). This group will receive treatment in a forthcoming revision. Here synonymy is documented for five of the described species ( T. hysterica , T. longula , T. mandibularis , T. morondaviensis , and T. sahlbergii ). With these synonymies established, the remaining valid names ( T. diana , T. exasciata , T. fictrix , T. perlonga , and T. rakotonis ) are believed to represent bona fide species.
