Relatedness Within and Between Colonies of a Queenless Ant Species of the Genus Rhytidoponera (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
Crozier, Ross H.; Parnilo, Pekka
Using genetic markers, low but statistically-significant relatednesses within and between colonies of Rhytidoponera Mayr 1862 sp. 12 (near R. mayri Emery 1883) were found. One colony examined had 23 mated individuals. Movement of ants was observed between some colonies, and hostility between others.
