First record of the Myrmicine

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., 1995; Porter, 1998; Elizalde and Folgarait, 2012).
The main host species is the myrmicine
ant Tetramorium tsushimae , but the details of the cricket's interaction with its host ant are unknown.

ants (Messor and Tetramorium), on the other hand, latency for large ants was significantly longer than for small ants (LME, [F.sub.1,24] = 13.4, P = 0.001, Fig.
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).
