In this paper we list the ant species collected in both remaining forests and urban areas in a South Amazonian landscape. The list includes 102 species, of which 29 are new records for the state of Rondônia, Brazil. This work demonstrates the gap in ant biodiversity surveys for Meridional Amazon as well as encouraging further research in this region.
