Technical Abstract: We present new records for Solenopsis invicta from the Bahama Islands (Abaco Island, Grand Bahama Island, and Gorda Cay) and the first records from the British Virgin Islands (Guana Island); the United States Virgin Islands (St. Croix, 2 sites); Antigua (4 sites); and the island of Trinidad. These records serve as a warning that this potentially damaging species is becoming widely distributed in the Caribbean.
