The following valid species and subspecies of ants are known to occur in Borneo. The island is divided among three countries: Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia and Malaysia. Approximately 73% of the island is Indonesian territory (Kalimantan). The Malaysian states of Sarawak and Sabah (East Malaysia), in the north, occupy about 26% of the island. The sovereign state of Brunei, located on the north coast, comprises about 1% of Borneo's land area.

Unidentified and undescribed species will be added to this list as identifications are verified and taxonomic revisions are published. This species list is based upon the effort of many ant collectors as well as myrmecologists who have published on the taxonomy of Borneo ants. Those who have specimen records that expand this list are encouraged to submit this information in the discussion section of the Borneo Ants web page.
