Cancel Generate Review No Pages Added. Ant diversity and abundance. We identified a total of ant species ( not including reproductives) comprising 64 genera in nine subfamilies from species occurrences in 3 strata ( not including reproductives; Tables S1, S2, S3).The most species-rich genera were Camponotus (46 species), Pheidole (45), Pseudomyrmex (30), Pachycondyla (25), Brachymyrmex (20), and Crematogaster (19).

Males of at least 30 genera are unknown, but as generic delimitation is still very active in the Myrmicinae some uncertainty exists for this number. Based on a study of the New World genera (B. Boudinot, in prep.), distinctions between genera may be weak and in many cases genera will have to be keyed multiple times due to variability.

Ants (family Formicidae in the order Hymenoptera) are the most species-rich of all social insects, with more t described species and many others awaiting description.

Formicidae is divided into 21 subfamilies, of which 17 are extant and four subfamilies are extinct, described from total more than genera have been described. Ants have come to occupy virtually all major. Identification Keys. The identification keys to the ant genera of Borneo by Prof.

Abstract. Based upon a single alate female the ant genus Bariamyrma from southern Venezuela is described as new. Recognized as a member of the lower Myrmicinae, its closest affinities with other myrmicines appear to be in the group of genera related to Lordomyrma.

Several species‐rich myrmicine genera are shown to be nonmonophyletic, including Two new species of the ant genus Myrmecina (Hymenoptera: Formicidae Local and regional drivers of ant communities in forest-grassland ecotones in South Brazil: A taxonomic and phylogenetic approach, PLOS ONE, / As with some other myrmicine ant genera recently described (Tyrannomyrmex, Dolopomyrmex, Tropidomyrmex), Diaphoromyrma is difficult to relate to any of the tribal taxa defined by Bolton ().

The central clypeal seta is characteristic of the Solenopsidini (sensu Bolton ), although they may not be homologous, but the clypeal configuration.

Introduction. The subfamily Myrmicinae is the most diverse clade of ants with currently more than 6, species, which is roughly equivalent to half the number of all described ant species (Bolton ).Within the past two decades ten new myrmicine genera and many more species have been discovered and described from the New World, including the extant genera Cryptomyrmex.

A total number of associations between the groups are evaluated, relating to 43 species of Microdontinae belonging to 14 genera, and to at least 69 species of ants belonging to 24 genera and five subfamilies.

The taxa of Microdontinae found in association with ants occur scattered throughout their phylogenetic tree. Define Myrmicine.
