The Ants of Africa
New records of ants from Sudan
collected by Awatif Omer, Zuheir Mahmoud and others
species list

Ants from Sudan

Collected by Awatif Omer, Professor Zuheir Mahmoud and associates, in 2005 and 2006. Most outside Khartoum, other than Yambio, Nyala and Al Faher, collected by Z Mahmoud. Also later collections by Awatif Omer in 2009,  2013, 2014 and 2015.  Primarily ground foraging species. Some Omer records are from South Sudan

Additional material from the investigation of ants on Acacia senegal by Justin Mathew, 2000-2001. Hence most appear to be arboreal species.

Images of type workers where available on the site are shown as CASENTxxxxxxx and shown on the species page.
