Identification Keys


The identification keys to the ant genera of Borneo by Prof. Hashimoto, which are presented in their original version below, as well as his glossary on ant morphology has recently been updated by Dr. Tom Fayle, who provides a bilingual English-Malay version of the key, which includes the latest taxonomic changes by Bolton (2003). Here we present a link to his work.

In cooperation with Assoc. Prof. Dr. Yoshiaki Hashimoto, University of Hyogo and Museum of Nature and Human Activities, Hyogo, we present here a link to his famous identification keys from his Ants of Borneo site. All his keys have been compiled in one book chapter than can be downloaded from here. We kindly thank Professor Hashimoto and are looking forward to further cooperation!
