Ants of La Picucha, Sierra de Agalta, Honduras

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

This is a working list of the ants of the cloud forests of La Picucha, a high peak in the Sierra de Agalta, Honduras, 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.

There is a minimum of 88 species so far recorded.
