Name edit

Adetomyrma caudapinniger Yoshimura & Fisher, 2012: 20, figs 19, 33, 42, 51, 59, 68

Holotype: CASC CASENT0244415, MG-29-75, ♂.
Type locality: MADAGASCAR, Fianarantsoa, Miandritsara Forest, 40 km S of Ambositra, 20° 47.56´ S, 47° 10.54´ E, 822 m alt., low altitude rainforest, Malaise trap, 15–24.i.2007, Rin'ha, Mike leg.

Etymology: This species name is derived from the Latin words caudapinna (tail fin) and gero (have), referring to the distinctive paramere. Pinniger can be both a noun and adjective, but is treated as a noun here, and thus invariant.
