Cupul-Magaña, F. G. ; Vásquez-Bolaños, M.

Dugesiana 2019 Vol 26 No. 1 pp. 27-29;


The myrmecofauna from María Cleofas Island, one of the four island of the Islas Marías archipelago Biosphere Reserve in the Gulf of California, Mexico, is poorly known. In this work, Camponotus atriceps, C. rectangularis, Leptogenys ixta, Pseudomyrmex elongatus and Solenopsis geminata were recorded for the first time from the island. Also, the previous photographic documentation of Atta mexicana in the locality, was confirmed by the examination of specimens.
