Ant Species of Louisiana

The ants of Louisiana join a growing number of U.S. states being covered by the AntWeb of the California Academy of Science. Photographs of pinned specimens of the species that occur in Louisiana can be found at this site.

Identifying and enumerating this state's species was carried out by Shawn Dash and a detailed account of his research can be found in his Master's thesis "Species Diversity and Biogeography of Ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in Louisiana, with Notes on Their Ecology"
