A phylogenetic hypothesis of the fungus‐growing ants (subfamily Myrmicinae, tribe Attini) is proposed, based on a cladistic analysis utilizing forty‐four morphological characters (109 states) of the prepupal worker larva. The fifty‐one attine species analysed include representatives of eleven of the twelve currently recognized attine genera, excluding only the monotypic workerless parasite Pseudoatta; the non‐attines include two outgroups (species of the basal myrmicine genera Myrmica and… Expand
