Pheidole pallidula tasdelenia Özdikmen, 2010 

Replacement name for Pheidole tristis Forel, 1907  [Junior secondary homonym of Pheidole tristis  S mith, 1858].

It was described from Kairouan, Tunisia on the basis of a single specimen considered by Forel as a microgyne (2.6–2.8 mm total length). The status of this problematic specimen cannot be cleared up without very extensive investigations of the Tunisian Pheidole  populations.
