Gainesville, Florida I I Ants of the dolichoderine genus Conomyrma are abundant in Florida. The nests are in the ground with the usually single nest opening surrounded by a rather uniformly constructed crater approx- imately 7 to 18 cm in diameter. Open areas in sandy soil with little vegetation 'are usually preferred as nesting sites. Distribution based on AntWeb specimens. Check data from AntWeb. Biology. This species was found attending extrafloral nectaries of the plant Turnera subulata in northeastern Brazil (12°16′24″S 38°57′20″W  /  °S °W  /) Caatinga vegetation Dorymyrmex pyramicus, classified as a dominant species, was a common attendant at the extrafloral nectaries.

Species of the genus Pheidole are the most abundant and diverse ants of the New World and range from the northern United States to Argentina. In this richly illustrated book, Edward O. Wilson untangles its classification for the first time, characterizing all known species, of which are new to science, and ordering them into 19 species groups. This is true even in the case of Ponera for, although one species of this genus has a range which reaches New England and southern Canada, its primary is in areas further south. The only part of the United States in which ponerine ants are found in any degree of abundance is the region bordering the Gulf of Mexico and the Mexican boundary.
