Two New Species of Ants Discovered from Kerala and Tamil Nadu

Two new species of a rare ant genus have been discovered in Kerala and Tamil Nadu by a team of scientists, the Department of Science and Technology informed recently.

One of the two species found in the Periyar Tiger Reserve of Kerala has been named Ooceraea joshii in honour of Professor Amitabh Joshi—a distinguished evolutionary biologist from Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR). The other named Ooceraea decamera (decamera refers to the ten-segmented antennal count) was discovered from Alagarkoil in Madurai.

‘The species of the ant genus Ooceraea found in Kerala and Tamil Nadu add to the diversity of this rare genus,’ the DST said. The discovery has been published in the journal ZooKeys.
