Abstract

Notes on Canadian species of myrmecophilous aleocharines are presented. Goniusa alperti Kistner, G. caseyi Gusarov, G. carrorum Maruyama & Klimaszewski, Paragoniusa myrmicae Maruyama & Klimaszewski of the tribe Athetini are recorded and discussed. Goniusa caseyi is recorded from Canada for the first time. Ants of Formica dakotensis Emery, F. ravida Creighton and F. subnitens Creighton are reported as new hosts for Goniusa carrorum. The male of Paragoniusa myrmicae is newly recorded and described. Myrmoecia canadensis of the tribe Lomechusini is described as new to science. The key to the Nearctic species of Myrmoecia is modified.
