Pachycondyla punctata Smith, 1858 an obsolete combination of Platythyrea punctata (Smith, 1858)
Pachycondyla punctata Smith, 1858a: 108 (w.m.) DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. Neotropic.
Primary type information: Type-material: 1 syntype worker, 1 syntype male. Type-locality: St. Domingo (no further data). Type-depository: not in BMNH, presumed lost. Type notes: The syntypes could not be found in BMNH. A queen of this species in BMNH, labelled as type of Platythyrea punctata, is correctly identified but has an incorrect label “P. pilosula Sm.”, and a white, rectangular label “Type. F. Smith coll. 79.22.” The original description of Platythyrea punctata did not mention a queen, and the date, (18)79, is far too late.
