So, just curious, what is everyone's favorite subfamily.
My favorite is probably Ponerinae or the subfamily Stigmatomma is in, Amblyoponinae.

Probably myrmicinae. I know, nothing special, but most of my favorite genera are in this subfamily.

I figured other people would have a similar view, as dracula ants are just so fascinating, as well as the equally primitive and cool Ponerines, which includes Odontomachus.
