Intraspecific aggression in the primitive ant genus Myrmecia


, : Intraspecific aggression in the primitive ant genus Myrmecia. Insectes Sociaux, 363: 161-172

Intraspecific aggression was studied in colonies of Myrmecia pilosula, M. gulosa, M. brevinoda and M. simillima. Newly-eclosed callow workers were not attacked by workers from other conspecific colonies. Aggression against conspecific alien workers was always greater than aggression against callows.

Unlike some other primitive ants, workers of at least 4 species of Myrmecia (M. pilosula, M. gulosa, M. simillima and M. brevinoda) are unable to independently eclose from their cocoons. Workers of some Myrmecia species (e.g. M. gulosa) have large...

Chromosome numbers in the related Australian ant genera Nothomyrmecia and Myrmecia cover the whole range for the Order Hymenoptera (Myrmecia 2n = 2-84, Nothomyrmecia 2n = 94), and much of that for Phylum Arthropoda.
