  • Peeters, Heraty & Wiwatwitaya (2015) report the first known case of a eucharitid wasp parasitising a Diacamma species, Diacamma scalpratum.
  • Evan Economo, Benoit Guénard and the AntMaps team are pleased to announce the launch of AntMaps. AntMaps is an interactive tool to visualize geographic distributions of all ant species as well as aggregate diversity patterns. AntMaps is based on the Global Ant Biodiversity Informatics (GABI) database, which aggregates records from over 8500 publications, plus museum and online databases, currently consisting of 1.6 million records in total. We hope you will find this new tool useful in your research.
  • Sociobiology is pleased to announce that the Special Issue on Taxonomy, Morphology and Phylogeny of Ants has now been published online, with open access. This accomplishment would not have been possible without the trust deposited by authors in this project, the hard work of the co-editors for this Special Issue, Rodrigo Feitosa, John Lattke and Ted Schultz, the Editors-in-chief of Sociobiology, and the work of the staff in the editorial office. We hope you find it interesting!
