Abstract

*[The Australasian ant genus Turneria is revised. T. bidentata Forel, T. dahlii Forel, & T. pacifica Mann are redescribed & a lectotype designated for T. bidentata. T. frenchi Forel is transferred to Stigmacros (comb.n.), & T. butteli Forel is transferred to Iridomyrmex (comb.n.). Three new species, T. arbusta, T. collina, & T. postomma, are described from Papua New Guinea. Males of the genus are described for the first time. A key to the workers of recognized species & a distribution map are provided. The group is analyzed cladistically & the resulting species relationships are discussed, along with a comment on the use of polymorphic characters.]
