Contents

The following species and subspecies of ants are known to occur in India. 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 Indian ants. Those who have specimen records that expand this list are encouraged to submit this information in the discussion section of the Indian Ants web page. Please advise if any corrections are warranted.

An index of information about the Ants of India is found at the India Regional Project page.

Uncertain species

The following species were described from India but their true identities are currently unknown.

Previous Records

  • Tetramorium caespitum (Linnaeus, 1758): Not reported as present by Agavekar et al. (2017).
  • Tetramorium tonganum Mayr, 1870: The Indian records of this species reported by Bharti & Kumar (2012) and Bharti et al. (2016) are based on a misidentification in Bharti & Kumar (2012). The species presented in that study is actually T. salvatum (Agavekar et al., 2017).
