Table 1 Distribution of the myrmecophiles in the pitfalls (WV site). For each myrmecophile species, the number of captured individuals (Nind) and number of pitfalls with at least one individual (Npitfall) are summarized for intranidal pitfalls (N = 24), pitfalls at the periphery (N = 75), and pitfalls outside the nests (> 0 m, N = 180)

From: Moving apart together: co-movement of a symbiont community and their ant host, and its importance for community assembly
