This large work on the ant genera of the Philippines improves our understanding of the amazing biodiversity of the archipelago. Twelve genera, including 3 undescribed, are recorded from the country for the first time for a total of 92 genera. The simplified keys will allow students to identify ants to the generic level. In addition, the species list has more than doubled to 474 valid names since Baltazar (1966). The authors hope to spur interest in the study of ants in the Philippines since the ant diversity of many islands is still largely unexplored.
