Formicidae of the Andaman and Nicobar islands (Indian Ocean: Bay of Bengal).J Insect Sci. 2010; 10:172.JI
Ants on the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India were surveyed. These collections doubled the number of ant species recorded from these islands (from 59 to 125). Records include five endemic species, but no endemic genera. The surveys were fairly superficial, and it is likely many species remain to be discovered on these islands.
