Various new records of ants have been added to the species register, bringing the total number of (sub)species of ants from Curaçao at 40! Peter Boer identified hundreds of ant specimens of the Naturalis Biodiversity Center collection and published the whole list of species at his website (link below). However, it is still yet an incomplete list, suggesting that there are more species of ants on Curaçao.
