2013 0-7734-4342-8
The New World species of the thief ant genus Solenopsis is revised. Thief ants are among the most common ants in nearly all terrestrial habitats. In this book a new scheme of well-defined species complexes is outlined, doing away with the ambiguities of previous schemes. Well-illustrated keys, in Spanish and English offer recognition of slightly over 80 species, all diagnosed, described, and illustrated, including gynes and males when possible.
