  • [Attini as junior synonym of Pheidolini: Fernández & Serna, 2019: 829.] [Note: the name Attini (1858) is easily senior to Pheidolini (1877), but Fernández & Serna, 2019: 829, suggest Pheidolini as the name for the tribe, apparently so that Attini can be reserved for the Neotropical fungus growers. The compiler of this catalogue maintains temporal priority, pending an appeal by the authors to the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature; the proposed change is not supported here.].
