Abstract

The literature on ant-like stone beetle–ant associations is reviewed and tabulated, bringing together nearly all published accounts of associations between these two groups. One hundred-seventeen species of Scydmaenidae (Coleoptera) in 20 genera are associated with 45 species of ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in 28 genera. In addition, 16 species of Scydmaenidae are known associates of termites (Isoptera).
