    In spring 2013, we sampled ants from 14 localities in the southern part of Montenegro. Four different collection methods were applied: direct sampling, litter sifting, pitfall trapping and baiting. We present a list of 62 collected ant species, five of which are new records for the country: Camponotus gestroi, C. honaziensis, Lasius nitidigaster, Temnothorax sp. 1, and T. sp. 2. Some of the recorded species are discussed, including a rare subspecies Crematogaster auberti savinae. A short informal description for two unidentified Temnothorax species is given.
