Table 12.1 by Brandao in Agosti et al. (eds), 2000. Ant: Standard
Methods for Measuring and Monitoring Biodiversity, Smithsonian
Institution Press includes most collections world wide with holding on
ants. Bothriomyrmex though is not very common in none of those
collections. Also check out the Kutter Collection in Lausanne,
Switzerland, who might have some specimen, since he once worked on those
ants.

Betreff: need help in Formicidae


Dear all!
One my Russian colleague (Dmitry Dubovikoff) is a myrmecologist. At this
time he works at very interesting genus Bothriomyrmex (Formicidae,
Dolichoderinae). These temporary parasites of other allied ants widely
distributed in the world (including Palaearctic, Oriental and Australian
areas), but very little-known. For example, among material received him
from Australia (only few specimens) all studied species are new! Now he
already studied all type material, but he very needs in additional
material wich is very scunty. It's a hard trouble for him. If anybody
know about some myrmecologycal collection or collectors who collect
ants, please, write him: dubovikoff at yandex.ru
