Abstract

Records of the distribution and host associations of Caenocholax fenyesi continue to increase. Crematogaster laeviuscula is reported for the first time as a host of male C. fenyesi, increasing the number of known male hosts to seven species in three subfamilies of Formicidae. Additionally, the distribution of C. fenyesi continues to become better known, with a first record from Colombia and additional records from Panama and Mexico added herein. Noted variation in aedeagus morphology from this study and previous evidence of genetic differences suggests that C. fenyesi, which is currently recognized as a monotypic species, is most likely a species complex.
