Centromyrmex is a pantropical, though mainly Afrotropical, genus of ants in the subfamily Ponerinae.

Biology

Centromyrmex Formicidae Centromyrmex alfaroi

They are predatory on termites, where a group hunting strategy may be employed, or may prey more generally on invertebrates in the upper soil layer of forests. Little is known about their biology, but workers are blind and well adapted to a subterranean lifestyle.
