Solenopsis papuana Emery, 1900

This ant species has been originally described from Papua New Guinea and has been also reported from various Pacific Islands, including Hawaii where it is invasive and a threat to native species. However, the Hawaiian populations appear to belong to a separate species and are in need of a taxonomic re-examination.
