A survey of ground-dwelling ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in Georgia
Florida Entomologist 87 (3), 253-260
Abstract: Ground-dwelling ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) were sampled at 29 sites in 26 counties in Georgia with pitfall traps, leaf litter extraction, visual searching, and bait stations. We found 96 ant taxa including nine species not previously reported from Georgia: Myrmica americana Weber, M. pinetorum Wheeler, M. punctiventris Roger, M. spatulata Smith, Pyramica wrayi (Brown), Stenamma brevicorne (Mayr), S. diecki Emery, S. impar Forel, and S. schmitti Wheeler, as well as three apparently undescribed species (Myrmica sp. and two Stenamma spp.). Combined with previous published records and museum records, we increased the total number of ground-dwelling ants known from Georgia to 144 taxa.

Hormigas que habitan en el suelo (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) fueron recolectadas en 29 sitios en 26 condados del estado de Georgia con trampas de suelo, extración de hojarasca, busqueda visual, y trampas de cebo. Nosotros encontramos 96 taxa de hormigas incluyendo nueve especies no informadas anteriormente en Georgia: Myrmica americana Weber, M. pinetorum Wheeler, M. punctiventris Roger, M. spatulata Smith, Pyramica wrayi (Brown), Stenamma brevicorne (Mayr), S. diecki Emery, S. impar Forel, y S. schmitti Wheeler, además de tres especies aparentemente no descritas (Myrmica sp. y dos Stenamma spp.). Al juntar estos datos con las publicaciones y registros de museos, nosotros aumentamos el número de hormigas conocidas que habitan el suelo en Georgia a un total de 144 taxa.
