This genus has been known as Acantholepis Mayr ,1861 for about 130 years but this name is a junior homonym of Acantholepis Krayr , 1846. Lepisiota Santschi, 1926 is the first available replacement name (Bolton, 1994). The new combination was then designated by Bolton five years later in the new general catalogue of the ants of the world (Bolton 1995).

Distribution: Palaearctic, Ethiopian & Oriental regions.
