Abstract

The 12 known species of Vombisidris range from India to Queensland, Australia, with most of them occurring in Malaysia and Indonesia 1. These ants are poorly represented in earlier collections, perhaps because they nest and forage arboreally and would thus tend to be overlooked by most ant-collectors 2. The only known species from India (Mudigere, Karnataka) is Vombisidris occidua Bolton, collected from low vegetation 1
