==Ant Identification==
 +
*See [[Ant Identification]] for guidelines on how to identify ants.
 +
*Several Identification keys are available, covering different Taxa and Geographic regions.
 +
**[[:Category:Key to subfamilies|Keys to Subfamilies]]
 +
**[[:Category:Key to genera|Keys to Genera]]
 +
**[[:Category:Key to species groups|Keys to Subgenera and Species Groups]]
 +
**[[:Category:Identification key|The complete Identification Key list]]
 +
**They can also be found in the subfamily or genus page ([[Ponerinae#identification|Keys to Ponerinae genus]], [[Tetramorium#Identification|Keys to Tetramorium species]])
 +
*Some regions have summary pages that gather all current available information to identify ants to species level:
 +
**[[Identification_resources_for_Afrotropical_Ants|Afrotropical Region (Excluding Arabian Peninsula)]]
 +
**[[Afrotropical Region Species List]]
 +
 
 +
**[[Identification_resources_for_Neotropical_Ants|Neotropical Region]]
 +
*[[Character States for Extant Ant Genera of the Formicidae]] are listed in a table derived from Synopsis of the Formicidae (Bolton 2003).
