Abstract

India is rich in ant diversity, but recent studies are limited to certain pockets of the country. In Northeast India, study of ant fauna is poor. The present study was carried out with an objective to explore the ant species present in the Bahona College campus of Jorhat, Assam. A total of 39 species of ants was recorded during the study representing 6 subfamilies. The subfamily Formicinae included 19 species, followed by Myrmicinae (10 species), Ponarinae (5 species), Dolichoderinae (3 species), Dolyrinae (one species) and Pseudomyrmecinae (one species). The genera Camponotus, Polyrhachis, Diacamma, Monomorium, etc were found dominant, whereas the others genera contained two or one species each. Five species of ants viz Camponotus irritans (Smith, 1857), Camponotus radiates Forel, 1892, Camponotus sericeus (Fabricius, 1798), Polyrhachis bicolor Smith, 1858 and Polyrhachis abdominalis Smith, 1858 are recorded first time from Assam. Investigation covering a wider geographical area for a longer period of time will certainly bring out more information on the myrmicofauna of the North-eastern region of India.

Key Words
