Morphological diversity within Dorylinae. 1–8, Lateral views of select Cerapachys species representing variation in a generalized morphology that probably reflects the doryline ancestral condition; 9–10, Dorsal head views of New World (Eciton) and Old World (Dorylus) army ant species illustrating some morphological characteristics such as falcate mandibles that are linked to their highly specialized foraging behavior; 11–12, Lateral views of New World and Old World Sphinctomyrmex species showing convergent evolution of distinctive abdominal constrictions.
