Sixty five ant species collected from 53 sampling sites were recorded from the Corfu Island (Ionian Islands). The checklist includes eight morphospecies not assigned to any formally described taxon. Temnothorax italicus Consani & Zangheri, 1952 is recorded from Greece for the first time. Additionally, the ant fauna of Corfu is compared with three other large Ionian Islands – Cephalonia, Lefkada and Zakynthos.
