ANTS OF ARUBA, species list

Peter Boer

This list is the result of the identification of samples collected between 1930 and 1970 by
H.J. MacGillavry, P. Wagenaar Hummelinck, R.H. Cobben (all in collection Naturalis Biodiversity Center) and by P. Boer in 2020.
All identifications (except the data from literature)
are done by the author.

The research in 2020 on Aruba was performed with financial support from the Uyttenboogaart-Eliasen Foundation.

A special thanks to the people of Arikok N.P., especially G. Nunes.

This list anticipates a paper about the ants of Aruba.

An identification key of the ants of Aruba, Bonaire
and Curacao is presented here.
