Data from: Revision of the highly specialized ant genus Discothyrea (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in the Afrotropics with x-ray microtomography and 3D cybertaxonomy

Francisco Hita Garcia, Ziv Lieberman, Cong Liu & Evan Economo
Discothyrea Roger, 1863 is a small genus of proceratiine ants with remarkable morphology and biology. However, due to cryptic lifestyle Discothyrea are poorly represented in museum collections and their taxonomy has been severely neglected. We perform the first comprehensive revision of Discothyrea in the Afrotropical region through a combination of traditional and 3D cybertaxonomy based on micro-CT. Species diagnostics and morphological character evaluations are based on examinations of all physical specimens and virtual analyses of...
