NEW on in March 2010:

More pictures from Vienna - Magdalena Sorger provided us with some more pictures from the Natural History Museum in Vienna. This month the pictures mainly concentrate on the genus Strumigenys, but there are also pictures of newly described species from Magdalena and Herbert Zettel, Polyrhachis baca and Vombisidris philippina. Be sure not to miss our newest pictures!

The Team has been to the British Natural History Museum in London!

In March we continue our series of pictures with ants from the British Natural History Museum in London. Have a look at some interesting species like Ishakidris ascitaspis or Gesomyrmex kalshoveni, or just enjoy the next extension of our virtual collection!


We were one of the teams of lucky researchers that had been granted access to the collections at the Natural History Museum in London through the SYNTHESYS Project. So we spent 5 days of hard work at the Museum and we managed to get pictures of 66 specimens from 65 species. Obviously we tried to get some really exciting species from some rare genera out of "Barry Bolton´s collection". In order to keep a steady flow of output we will present several subsets of this work, so be prepared to see pictures of some most interesting species over the next few weeks.

Of course we are happy being able to present the following statement as well:

"This research received support from the SYNTHESYS Project which is financed by European Community Research Infrastructure Action under the FP7 Integrating Activities Programme."
