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.
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.
Los taxones estan distribuidos por subfamilias de la siguiente manera: Cerapachyinae (1:1:1); Dolichoderinae (1:4:10); Ecitoninae (1:3:13); Ectatomminae (2:3:3); Formicinae (3:5:26); Myrmicinae (8:17:91); Ponerinae (1:4:10) y Pseudomymicinae (1:1:8).
