Monomorium ellenarium sp. nov., a new inquilinous ant species (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) of the Monomorium monomorium group from Azerbaijan Republic

Abstract :

In this publication, a new ant species, Monomorium ellenarium sp. nov., is described based on material collected from several colonies, all found in a steppe near a beach between the areas of Shuvelyan and Dubendi settlements (Absheron Peninsula). This species, placed in the Monomorium monomorium species group, makes one of many much-needed contributions to the understudied myrmecophauna of Azerbaijan. The species also appears to be an inquiline of Cataglyphis nodus (Brullé, 1833).
