  • We describe for the first time the gyne of the Neotropical fungus-farming ant Mycetosoritis explicata, a species hitherto known from only two workers collected in Goias State, Brazil, in 1968. A redescription of the worker is presented. The likely non-monophyly of the genus Mycetosoritis and the possible position of the constituent species within the tribe Attini are discussed.
