Pheidole jordanica Saulcy, 1874 

P. jordanica  has been described from Jericho, Israel. The morphological description states the eyes to have twice the size and the segments of antennal club to have 1.5 fold the length observed in P. pallidula  and the carinulae on head extending to hind vertex. This excludes a synonymy with any member of the P. pallidula  complex. Future revisers should check a synonymy with Ph. sinaitica  .
