    Excluded from the extreme, workerless inquilines
    Once this species was included in the extreme, workerless inquilines but now it is considered to be a workerless inquiline without extreme reductions, e.g. no pupoid males but normal ones. The decision to exclude it was made by Edward Osborne Wilson in 1984 in a study of the inquilines in the genus Pheidole Westwood, 1839.

    A remark about synonymy

    Anergates friedlandi Creighton, 1934 is now a synonym from Anergates atratulus (Schenck, 1852), more precisely an introduced form in North Americe. So, the name is Anergates atratulus (Schenck, 1852) or, if you follow Ward et al. 2015 ("2014"), Tetramorium atratulum (Schenck, 1852)...

    Synonyms of host species

    - T. caespitum (Linnaeus, 1758) (= Formica caespitum Linnaeus, 1758)
    - T. impurum (Förster, 1850) (= Myrmica impura Förster, 1850)
    - P. megacephala (Fabricius, 1793) (= Formica megecephala Fabricius, 1793)
    - P. megacephala (Fabricius, 1793) subsp. melancholica Santschi, 1912 was originally described as P. punctulata Mayr, 1866 st. melancholica Santschi, 1912
    - The host species P. strobeli Emery, 1906 was, in 1922, described as a subspecies of an other species, nl. P. nitidula Emery, 1888 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909 (a much used junior synonym of the older P. perversa Forel, 1908 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909) and known as P. strobeli Emery, 1906 subsp. richteri Forel, 1909 since Santschi, 1916. The species P. strobeli Emery, 1906 was revived from synonymy (with P. nitidula Emery, 1888 since Wilson, 2003) and the subspecies was synonymized with it in Casadei-Ferreira et al., 2020.
    - P. obscurior Forel, 1886 was revived from synonymy with the 1 page older P. susannae Forel, 1886 and this in Casadei-Ferreira et al., 2020.

    And a second more references missed in the literature lists of Teleutomyrmex Kutter, 1950 and Anergates Forel, 1874.

    There are a lot more references missed in the literature lists but I think I have now included most of the more important ones in the lists from Teleutomyrmex, Anergates and the two lists missed in the literature lists.

    I updated one reference to include more info:

    First: Yes, we keep Teleutomyrmex Kutter, 1950 and Anergates Forel, 1874.

    All species in these little genera with the names Teleutomyrmex Kutter, 1950 and Anergates Forel, 1874 and, of course, the big genus Tetramorium Mayr, 1855.

    Second: No, we don’t keep Teleutomyrmex Kutter, 1950 and Anergates Forel, 1874 but yes, we keep Tetramorium Mayr, 1855.

    But: Only a few species in the genus Tetramorium Mayr, 1855 following Ward et al., 2015 (“2014”)…

    Tetramorium inquilinum Ward, Brady, Fisher & Schultz, 2015
    = Tetramorium schneideri (Kutter, 1950)
    Tetramorium kutteri (Tinaut, 1990), still needs a new name
    Tetramorium seiferti (Kiran & Karaman, in Kiran, et al. 2017)
    Tetramorium buschingeri (Lapeva-Gjonova, in Kiran, et al. 2017)
    Tetramorium atratulus (Schenck, 1852)
    = Tetramorium friedlandi (Creighton, 1934)
    Tetramorium microgyna Santschi, 1918
    Tetramorium parasiticum Bolton, 1980

    Third: No, we don’t keep Teleutomyrmex Kutter, 1950, Anergates Forel, 1874 and Tetramorium Mayr, 1855.

    Or: …, if you follow the line further then Ward et al., 2015 (“2014”), a few species in the genus Strongylognathus Mayr, 1853.

    Strongylognathus inquilinum (Ward, Brady, Fisher & Schultz, 2015)
    = Strongylognathus schneideri (Kutter, 1950)
    Strongylognathus kutteri (Tinaut, 1990), still needs a new name
    Strongylognathus seiferti (Kiran & Karaman, in Kiran, et al. 2017)
    Strongylognathus buschingeri (Lapeva-Gjonova, in Kiran, et al. 2017)
    Strongylognathus atratulus (Schenck, 1852)
    = Strongylognathus friedlandi (Creighton, 1934)
    Strongylognathus microgyna (Santschi, 1918)
    Strongylognathus parasiticum (Bolton, 1980)
