Compared to S. invicta, the tropical fire ant, Solenopsis geminata, is less aggressive but actually has a greater worldwide invasive distribution (Wetterer 2011; …
View Article Google Scholar 10. The ability of Solenopsis invicta workers and larvae to regulate the volume of food ingested individually has been well documented. The protein was present in higher amounts than other proteins, as determined by SDS-PAGE, and presumably has allergenic properties similar to those of Sol i 2.

The patterns of allometry across the 15 species of Solenopsis suggest that all but S. geminata follow very similar rules that generate shape as size increases (Fig. Potential global range expansion of the invasive ﬁre ant, Solenopsis invicta ... area is already occupied by other dominant Solenopsis species (S.geminata[F.] and S.saevissima[F.

Mounds of Solenopsis geminata will contain workers with square-shaped heads that are larger in proportion to the rest of their body.
doubtedly, S. geminata has acquired many vernacular names where it has become established in tropical Africa, Asia and Polynesia. In this paper, the ability of fire ant workers and larvae to regulate the quality and type of food ingested is demonstrated. A revision of the fire ants, Solenopsis geminata group (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Myrmicinae).

Location (on a map) of collection: Palm Springs, CA 2. Summarizing first all species except S. geminata , the head and gaster are subject to the strongest allometry, with relative head and mesosoma volumes decreasing with worker size and gaster increasing. Buren WF (1972) Revisionary studies on the taxonomy of the imported fire ants. Both are native to South America (Buren 1972) and were first detected in Mobile, AL, in the first half of the 20 th century (Buren 1972, Buren et al. 1) Potiwat R, Tanyaratsrisakul S, Maneewatchararangsri S, et al.
