The Florida list (Deyrup, M.,Johnson, C.,Wheeler, G.C., & Wheeler, J.) published in1989 is replaced to accomodate 49 additional species now know from Florida, and 34 name changes in species already on the 1989 list. Currently, 218 species of ants are reliably reported from Florida. The native species Formica subsericea & Solenopsis xyloni, and the exotic species Myrmelachista ramulorum & Tetramorium lanuginosum have not been found in many years and may have been extirpated. Some taxonomic notes are given.
