Description: Megalomyrmex is an exclusively Neotropical ant genus allied to Nothidris, Tranopelta, and others currently placed in the tribe Solenopsidini (Ettershank, 1966; Bolton, 1994). In a recent revision of the genus, Brandao (1990) recognized 31 species and four species groups. The distribution of Megalomyrmex extends from tropical Mexico to southern Brazil. Recently, saturated nitrogen heterocycles, similar to those found in Monomorium and Solenopsis species, have been reported in four Megalomyrmex species (Jones et al., 1991a, l991b). In Monomorium and Solenopsis these venom components are species specific (Jones et al., 1988; Vander Meer, 1988).

Keywords: Megalomyrmex, chemical compounds, Monomorium, Solenopsis, ants, Mexico, Brazil, venom
