The evolution of myrmicine
ants: phylogeny and biogeography of a hyperdiverse ant clade (Hymenoptera: Formicidae).
First record of the Myrmicine
ant genus Meranoplus Smith, 1853 Hymenoptera: Formicidae) from the Arabian Peninsula with description of a new species and notes on the zoogeography of southwestern Kingdom Saudi Arabia.
americana emits defensive chemicals, but other myrmicine
ants do contain chemicals (Daly et al, 2000).
Suggestively, a similar defensive posture against attacking scuttle flies has been reported from a variety of genera of Myrmicine
ants (Feener, 1987, 1988; Feener and Brown, 1992; Porter et al.

ants (Messor and Tetramorium), on the other hand, latency for large ants was significantly longer than for small ants (LME, [F.
As early as 1911, Santschi demonstrated that the myrmicine
ant, Messor barbarus, used the sun in returning to its nest.
Ants of the genus Aphaenogaster construct a Type-I nest that is intermediate in size and turnover between the long-lived (Type II) structures typical of Myrmicine
species of the Northern Hemisphere, and the tiny Type-I structures with a high turnover described by Hughes (1991).
Polygyny, relatedness, and nest founding in the polygynous myrmicine
ant Leptothorax acervorum (Hymenoptera; Formicidae).
ants also are dominant in vineyards in South Africa (Addison & Samways 2000), Australia (Chong et al.
In the myrmicine
ants, they have been investigated in the genera Aphaenogaster Mayr, Crematogaster Lund, Tetramorium Mayr (Hunter, 1964; Kistner, 1982) and Solenopsis Westwood (Ebermann and Moser, 2008).
