Taxonomic Studies on the Genus Myrmoteras Forel (Hymenoptera:Formicidae), with Description of Two New Species from India
TLDR
A revised key to the Indian species is also provided, and male of M. brachygnathum is here described for the very first time. Expand
Revision of the ant genus Myrmoteras of the Indo-Chiese Peninsula (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Formicinae).
TLDR
The Indo-Chinese species of the genus Myrmoteras are revised and five new species are described based on the worker caste, including one species in the subgenus Myagroteras and six species from Vietnam, Myanmar and Thailand. Expand
NEW MYRMOTERAS ANTS (HYMENOPTERA: FORMICIDAE) FROM THE SOUTHEASTERN PHILIPPINES
A key to Philippine species of the formicine ant genus Myrmoteras Forel, 1893 is presented and two new species are described: Myrmoteras (Myagroteras) glabrum, new species from the island of CamiguinExpand
The formicidae of Borneo (Insecta: Hymenoptera): A preliminary species list
TLDR
A critical review of ant literature resulted in a catalogue of 97 ant genera with 717 valid species and 52 additional subspecies of ants from 12 subfamilies, including eight genera for which, up to now, only morphospecies have been recorded in Borneo. Expand
The Ants (Hymenoptera, Formicidae) of Sri Lanka: a taxonomic research summary and updated checklist
TLDR
An updated checklist of the ants of Sri Lanka is presented, which provides a synthesis of the regional taxonomical work carried out to date and will serve as a baseline for future studies on the ant fauna of this biodiversity hotspot. Expand
Performance, morphology and control of power-amplified mandibles in the trap-jaw ant Myrmoteras (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
TLDR
The kinematics, anatomy and power-amplification mechanism for trap-jaw ants in the genus Myrmoteras, one of four convergent ant lineages with spring-loaded mandibles, are described. Expand
The evolution and functional morphology of trap-jaw ants
TLDR
What is currently known about the evolution, morphology, kinematics, and behavior of trap-jaw ants is discussed, with special attention to the similarities and key differences among the independent lineages. Expand

  • The Journal of experimental biology
  • 1996
TLDR
Ants of three different subfamilies, among them the tribe Dacetini, have evolved very fast snapping mandibles called trap-jaws, which are a remarkable example of convergent evolution. Expand
