Observations on the Acanthostichus quadratus (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Cerapachyinae) visiting underground bait and fruits of the Syagrus romanzoffiana in an area of the Atlantic forest, Brazil.
We learn that the monophyly of Formicidae and most of its subfamilies is well supported by both molecular and morphological studies, except for Amblyoponinae and Cerapachyinae. However, there is no certainty about the relationships between subfamilies, especially within the poneroid complex, which seems to be an artificial group.
For each of the subfamilies Cerapachyinae and Ecitoninae, only one species was sampled with Winkler's extractors and pitfalls.
From these data relationships among the major ant lineages were inferred demonstrating that of the 19 subfamilies included in the analysis all were recovered as monophyletic with the exception of Cerapachyinae. In addition, Moreau, et al.
