ABSTRACT Aim We sought to reconstruct the biogeographical structure and dynamics of a hyperdiverse ant genus,(More)
The ant genus Pheidole-for all of its hyperdiversity and global ubiquity-is remarkably conservative with regard to morphological disparity. A striking exception to this constrained morphology is the spinescent morphotype, which has evolved multiple times across distantly related lineages of Indoaustralian Pheidole. The Pheidole cervicornis group contains(More)
