Moser, J.C. 1963. Contents and structure Atta texana nest in summer. Annals of the Entomological Society of America 56(3): 286–291.

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.

Beetles associated with Atta and Acromyrmex ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Attini)

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.

Although the ant-fauna of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona comprises a greater number of species than that of the whole remaining portion of America north of Mexico, it has never been made the subject of systematic investigation. In the following study I have brought together the scattered and rather meager materials published by previous authors and have added several new forms, especially of Pheidole, a cosmopolitan genus represented by a great number of species in tropical and subtropical America. A residence of four years (1899-1903) in central Texas, several excursions to the Trans Pecos deserts of that State, and a journey through New Mexico and Arizona during the spring of 1905, have enabled me not only to secure the large series of specimens now deposited in the American Museum of Natural History, but also to observe the living ants in their natural environment. This, as every myrmecologist knows, is often of the greatest importance in determining the status of species, subspecies and varieties.

Abstract

The distribution of 291 known species of Texas ants was recorded from published literature and examination of identified museum specimens. For each species, all counties of known occurrence are given as well as a distribution map...
