There is some confusion in the scientific name of this species, with most people knowing it by the latin name Camponotus gigas. Until the start of 2016, this ant was previously known as Camponotus gigas, under the subgenus Dinomyrmex, before new phylogenetic studies concluded that it was from a distinct lineage, resulting in the resurrection of the genus Dinomyrmex and the new combination Dinomyrmex gigas and Dinomyrmex gigas borneensis
