Miscellaneous records.

Species from the Maldives, North Malé, Ihuru Atoll, collected by Marco Aita

Note: This may well be the first record of three of the species from The Maldives. Wetterer (2008a) has a previously unpublished record of Paratrechina longicornis from Hulhule Island. His comprehensive study (Wetterer, 2008b) of Tapinoma megacephalum global records does not have any report. The record of Camponotus compressus is unsurprising as it is well recorded from all over the Indian sub-continent. The Tapinoma fragile record is of great interest as apparently only the second record from anywhere and the type location is the quite isolated Rodrigues Island, some 2800 km away across the Indian Ocean.
