Abstract

Based on taxonomic characters such as male and female genitalia and male chelicerae, four new species of Myrmarachne from Townsville, north Queensland are described. The proposed new species include: Myrmarachne rubra, Myrmarachne aurea, Myrmarachne gurgulla and Myrmarachne smaragdina. Information is also provided on the biology and ecology of these species and a comparison between the species is also presented, supported by data collected over 2.5 years.
