Abstract

Chromosome numbers in the related Australian ant genera Nothomyrmecia and Myrmecia cover the whole range for the Order Hymenoptera (Myrmecia 2n=2–84, Nothomyrmecia 2n=94), and much of that for Phylum Arthropoda. Karyological statistics for these and other ants are reviewed. Myrrnecia appears to be the most karyologically diverse of all investigated animal genera, and the Formicidae one of the most diverse of all animal families.
