The following genera, species and subspecies of ants are known to occur in the Dominican Republic. Unidentified and undescribed species will be added to this list as identifications are verified and taxonomic revisions are published. This species list is based upon the effort of many ant collectors as well as myrmecologists who have published on the taxonomy of Dominian Republic ants. Those who have specimen records that expand this list are encouraged to submit this information in the discussion section of the Dominican Republic Ants web page. Extinct ants are found at Miocene Ants from Dominican Republic. Check on Hispaniola which includes Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
