Abstract:

Seven new Myrmica species (M. curiosa, M. mixta, M. pararitae, M. poldii, M. sinoschencki, M. weii and M. polyglypta) are described from Shaanxi, Sichuan, Hunan and Yunnan provinces of China. Their taxonomic positions are discussed. M. sinoschencki is placed in the schencki-group, M. pararitae and M. poldii – in the ritae-group and M. mixta – in the inezae-group, while the position of the other three species is still uncertain. M. sinica Wu et Wang, 1995 is formally synonymised with M. excelsa Kupyanskaya, 1990.
