Ecitocleptis socia Borgmeier, 1949 

Paratype (1) “Campinas Goiaz / IV- 30 / Schwarzmaier” “Coleção / M. Alvarenga” printed on white label “Cotypus” printed on red label. “ Eciton  / schlechtendali  ”, printed on white label “ Ecitocleptis  / socia  / Borg. / det. Borgmeier” handwritten and printed on white label. “ DZUP / 144513 ”, printed on white label. Remarks: This specimen has all information from the original description ( Borgmeier 1949), except the name of the host (ant) “ Eciton (Nomamyrmex) crassicorne F. Smith  ” ( Borgmeier 1949: 116). However, we are considering this specimen as type because of the great agreement in data and the large number of original paratypes included in Borgmeier (1949). Occasional missing host or date data would not be unusual in such a large series of specimens and the disagreement in host name could be due to a change in identification of the host ant after those specimens were labeled (Dr. Alfred F. Newton, Field Museum of Natural History, FMNH, personal communication).
