Key to the ant genera of Borneo in English and Malay

I have created an updated Key to the Ant Genera of Borneo, based on the keys of Yoshiaki Hashimoto (link to original keys). This has been translated into Malay by Kalsum Mohd Yusah in order to encourage the development of ant identification skills and promote knowledge of ant biodiversity locally. We have also assembled a glossary of morphological terms. Note that these are under ongoing development. If you have any feedback please contact me at tmfayle@gmail.com
