Based on recently collected material and study on type specimens Messor carpathous Menozzi, 1936 n. stat. and Messor concolor Santschi, 1927 n. stat. are raised to species rank and redescribed. Messor creticus sp. nov. is described as a new endemic species to Crete. Revised data for members of the Messor structor complexes are given and updated checklist of Greek Messor taxa is provided. 
Review of the Camponotus kiesenwetteri group (Hymenoptera, Formicidae) in the Aegean with the description of a new species
TLDR
The Camponotus kiesenwetteri group is redefined, and its members known from the Aegean region are diagnosed, and a key to workers of species of the C. kiesanwettero group is provided.
Review of ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) from Jordan
TLDR
An updated checklist of ant species known from Jordan is presented, which lists 58 species and 26 morphospecies identified to genus or species group level and lists doubtful records of ten taxa.
New and little-known ant species (Hymenoptera, Formicidae) from Bulgaria
TLDR
Data is presented on 11 ant species recorded for the first time in Bulgaria as well as new locality data on 15 rarely found species that have been known so far only from a single locality in Bulgaria.
How estimated ant diversity is biased by the sampling method? A case study of Crete: a Mediterranean biodiversity hotspot
TLDR
An integrated approach, described here as HCM, appears to be more suitable for heterogeneous Mediterranean habitats, especially when a survey aims at α-, β-, and γ-diversity assessments.
