A Taxonomic Study on the Genus Strumigenys Smith, 1860 (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) from Korea with a description of new species


Korean species of the genus Strumigenys Smith, 1860 are revised. One new species, Strumigenys calvus sp. nov. and two newly recorded species are presented in this study. The records of Strumigenys sp. in Choi (1995) are here identified as S. kumadori based on the examination of the description and taxonomic key provided by Choi (1995). In order to facilitate proper identification of Korean Strumigenys species, we provide a taxonomic key for all known South Korean Strumigenys species, with detailed descriptions and photographs for the newly recorded species. Diagnoses with short descriptions for two species (S. alecto and S. solifontis) are provided to clarify their identification. Brief ecological information and distribution maps for each species are also given. Overall, thirteen Strumigenys species have been recorded from South Korea.
