  1. 1In addition to several Camponotini specimens, we screened one isolate of Notostigma, recently removed from the Camponotini and placed in its own tribe. For nearly all samples, the 16S rDNA gene was amplified using Blochmannia-specific primers and the PCR product was sequenced directly. The three exceptions are as follows: aOverlapping primer pairs were used to amplify bacterial 16S rDNA from Opisthopsis haddoni 244; bCloning of PCR products was required for Opisthopsis PG01 and Notostigma carazzii 226; cUniversal eubacterial primers SL-SR were used to amplify bacterial 16S rDNA from Notostigma carazzii 226.
