Dos especies de hormigas tambien se encontraban sobre la planta: Camponotus integellus Forel, 1899 (Formicinae) y Pheidole huacana Wilson, 2003 (Myrmicinae).
The remaining 40% belonged to genera with difficult taxonomic identification such as Pheidole, Solenopsis, Hypoponera and Camponotus (Lyal & Weitzman, 2004).
These are introduced as invasive species known as Anoplolepis gracillipes, Solenopsis geminata, and Camponotus species.
According to statistical analyses, for winter season, the significant effect of different land-use types had been observed on the population abundance of ants (Monomorium spp.; p-value = 0.001), coleopteran grubs (p-value = 0.001) and carabid and staphylinid beetles (p-value < 0.05), earthworms (p-value = 0.004), earwigs (p-value = 0.01), isopods (p-value = 0.001) and soil-dwelling spiders (p-value = 0.001), while the abundance of ants (Camponotus spp.), crickets, surface grasshoppers, myriapods and termites appeared unaffected by land-use types (Supplementary Table I).
They were Aceraius sp., Chalcosoma sp., Panesthia sp., Trigonacollina, Trigona sp., Camponotus gigas, Camponotus sp., Gnamptogeny smenadensis, Polistine sp., Globitermes globosus, Hypotermes xenotermitis, Macrotermes sp., Odontotermes sp.
Morphospecies that most contributed to the groupings were two Chironomidae, Camponotus blandus (Smith, 1858) (Formicidae) and Erythrodiplax paraguayensis (Forster, 1905) (Libellulidae).
