Ants of Sierra Morena, Chiapas, Mexico

Report by John T. (Jack) Longino, The Evergreen State College.

This is a working list of the ants of Sierra Morena, Chiapas, Mexico, based on Project LLAMA sampling. Specimen records have been uploaded to the AntWeb database and are periodically updated.

This is a static webpage with links to the AntWeb species pages, where you can see distribution maps on Google Earth. If links are dead, that means the database has changed as hypotheses of species boundaries evolve and names change.

Adelomyrmex JTL011 (cf. tristani, but smaller, shorter dorsal pilosity, erect setae on hind tibia present or absent (always present on tristani), queens smaller with larger shiny spot on mesonotum.)
Adelomyrmex JTL014 (cf. micans, but face sculptured, not shiny.)
Adelomyrmex JTL016 (a single queen, the size of A. robustus queen, but with shorter pilosity and no erect setae on hind tibia.)
