Abstract

Ponera guangxiensis Zhou, 2001 was originally described from Guangxi Province, China, based on workers only. Since then, no further information on this species became available. Recently, we successfully retrieved a complete colony series of P. guangxiensis in the northernmost part of Vietnam, close to Guangxi Province. We herein redescribe the worker of P. guangxiensis and describe the queen, male, pupa, and larvae for the first time. Furthermore, the utility of using male genitalia morphology for discriminating Ponera species is discussed.
