Antioquia is a state department of Colombia, located in thenorthwestern Andes of South America. Geologically, the northwesternregion of the Western Range in Antioquia and Chocóincludes the fault resulting from the connection between theIsthmus of Panamá and South America. The Occidental andCentral cordilleras in Colombia are characterized by a numberof reliefs, valleys and water basins, containing historicalbiological refuges and endemisms. In this study, we presentthe first species-level checklist of the 255 species in 64 generaand 14 subfamilies of ants currently known in Antioquia. Onehundred and fifty-two 152 species had previously been registeredfor the state in different publications. Here, 103 additionalspecies are recognized. Most of these species are distributed inother bioregions of the country as well. Forty-six percent arepresent in the Amazon Province and 36% in the ColombianOrinoco River basin. Less than 3% are found in the arid landsof the Colombian Caribbean area, Guyana, and the ColombianPacific Province, plus the Caribbean islands. Sixty-three percentof the species are shared with Costa Rica. Our checklist constitutesthe largest roster of ants at the species level for a state inColombia to date and constitutes the beginning of the assessmentof ant diversity in Antioquia. Many more field trips arenecessary to gain a better understanding of the ant compositionof this state. The following 13 species are new to the records forColombia: Azteca diabolica, Camponotus amoris, C. eurynotus,C. pachylepis, C. propinquus, C. tonduzi, Cerapachys toltecus,Cylindromyrmex whymperi, Myrmicocrypta urichi, Pheidoleangulifera, Pseudomyrmex lisus, Solenopsis subterranea andTrachymyrmex zeteki.

Geologically, the northwestern region of the Western Range in Antioquia and Chocó includes the fault resulting from the connection between the Isthmus of Panamá and South America.
The Occidental and Central cordilleras in Colombia are characterized by a number of reliefs, valleys and water basins, containing historical biological refuges and endemisms.
In this study, we present the first species-level checklist of the 255 species (in 64 genera and 14 subfamilies) of ants currently known in Antioquia.
One hundred and fifty-two (152) species had previously been registered for the state in different publications.
Here, 103 additional species are recognized.
Most of these species are distributed in other bioregions of the country as well.
Forty-six percent are present in the Amazon Province and 36% in the Colombian Orinoco River basin.
Less than 3% are found in the arid lands of the Colombian Caribbean area, Guyana, and the Colombian Pacific Province, plus the Caribbean islands.
Sixty-three percent of the species are shared with Costa Rica.
Our checklist constitutes the largest roster of ants at the species level for a state in Colombia to date and constitutes the beginning of the assessment of ant diversity in Antioquia.
Many more field trips are necessary to gain a better understanding of the ant composition of this state.
The following 13 species are new to the records for Colombia: Azteca diabolica, Camponotus amoris, C.
eurynotus, C.
