Absence or low levels of aggression at transcontinental scale, which may have derived from low genetic variation, may help introduced Argentine ants maintain expansive supercolonies and implies possible frequent exchanges of individuals among the intercontinental populations mediated by human activities.
Long-Term Field Trial to Control the Invasive Argentine Ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) with Synthetic Trail Pheromone
Long-term field trial was conducted in 100-m2 plots of house gardens in an urban area of Japan to see whether the control effect on Argentine ants can be obtained by permeating synthetic trail pheromone from dispensers, and suppression of Argentine ant foraging activity was suppressed in the presence of the dispensers.
Four mutually incompatible Argentine ant supercolonies in Japan: inferring invasion history of introduced Argentine ants from their social structure
The discontinuous distribution of onesupercolony throughout most of the Japanese range suggests rapid expansion of the supercolony via human-mediated jump dispersal, and localization of the other three supercolonies in Kobe Port provides the first evidence for multiple invasions of distinctsupercolonies into a base for international trade.
On the evolution of the species complex Pachycondyla chinensis (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Ponerinae), including the origin of its invasive form and description of a new species
The finding of the new species P. nakasujii suggests that much remains undiscovered even in biologically fascinating and well-studied organisms.
Phylogenetic Systematics of the Family Bethylidae (Insecta: Hymenoptera) Part I. Higher Classification
- M. Terayama
The higher phylogeny of the family Bethylidae was cladistically analyzed using the all possible subfamilies. The analysis yielded in a single most parsimonious tree. The following conclusions were…
The ant genus Leptanilla: discovery of the worker‐associated male of L.japonica, and a description of a new species from Taiwan (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Leptanillinae)
The male and female of Leptanilla japonica Baroni Urbani are described, which is the first worker‐associated male to be discovered in subfamily Leptonillinae and implications of the male morphology and taxonomic positions of the other leptanilline genera based on males are discussed.
