Specimens of seven fire ant species collected from their native ranges in Argentina were studied by protein electrophoresis and morphological analysis. Concordance between the genetic and morphological character sets is strong (96% agreement on identifications), suggesting that recognition of reproductively isolated populations and partitioning of intra- and interspecific variation can in most cases be achieved using appropriate characters of either type in this taxonomically difficult group… CONTINUE READING
