Abstract: A large nest of Atta texana (Buckley) in central Louisiana was partially excavated in August 1960. Twelve dormancy, 5 detritus, and 93 fungus-garden cavities were found. Fungus-garden cavities near the surface outnumbered those at lower depths and contained most of the fungus material and brood. Inquilines were most numerous in detritus cavities. Dormancy cavities are described as new to science.

Abstract

Attini ants form a monophyletic group restricted to America. Atta and Acromyrmex are distributed from the United States south to South America excluding Chile and some of the West Indies. This paper provides new records in addition to the compilation of published information on the beetles associated with those ant genera, including a checklist.
