Myrmeciites

Insecta - Hymenoptera - Formicidae

Taxonomy
Myrmeciites was named by Archibald et al. (2006) [This generic name is proposed for all fossil ant species referable to the subfamily Myrmeciinae, yet whose orthotaxonomic generic position is unclear by the poor or incomplete preservation of their present specimens]. It is considered to be a form taxon.

It was assigned to Myrmeciinae by Archibald et al. (2006) and Bolton (2012).
