Gonzalez leg., 2000 m, Winkler #9, labeled as paratype of Adelomyrmex longispinosus  . However, the name Adelomyrmex longispinosus  has never been published, and this specimen is listed also as examined material of Adelomyrmex tristani ( Menozzi, 1931)  by Fernández, 2003b, which is currently recognized as a senior synonym of Adelomyrmex brevispinosus Fernández, 2003: 596 ( Fernández & MacKay, 2003)  by Longino, 2012: 32.
