This list is based on the work of Mary Talbot. Her collections from the ESGR spanned a quarter of a century and yielded  87 species across 4 subfamilies.  Some changes have been made to bring the taxonomy in her list of ant species (Talbot 1975) up to date, primarily following those changes in Wheeler et al. (1994).
