Guillem, Rhian and Bensusan, Keith (2009) Tetramorium Parvioculum Sp. N. (FORMICIDAE: MYRMICINAE), A new species of the T. Simillimum group from Gibraltar. Boletín Sociedad Entomológica Aragonesa, 45. pp. 157-161.
We describe a new species of Tetramorium, which has so far only been found in Gibraltar. Tetramorium parvioculum sp. n. belongs to the simillimum-group, which is of Afrotropical origin. It is likely that this species is a non native and was imported with plant material originating from tropical Africa. The ecology of this new species is discussed.
