Tatuidris

Wikipedia Abstract

Tatuidris, or armadillo ants, is a rare genus of ants consisting of a single species, Tatuidris tatusia. The ants are small in size and inhabit the leaf litter of Neotropical forests in Central and South America, from Mexico to Brazil. Discovered to be one of the earliest lineages of ants, Tatuidris is very distinctive and isolated within the Formicidae; it bears superficial resemblance to some extant genera, but these similarities are considered to be due to convergent evolution.
