Study species: Myrmarachne


The spiders of Genus Myrmarachne resemble ants morphologically and behaviourally.


Around 210 species of ant-like spider (Myrmarachne) are recorded in the world and some 80 from Southeast Asia. However, accurate distribution of each species and fauna of each region are not well known. It is expected that many taxonomic works like an arrangement of synonyms still remain in Southeast Asia because there are no comprehensive study treating Myrmarachne species in this region. In some species, the combination of male and female have not been revealed yet.
