PONERINAE is a subfamily of ants in the Poneromorph subfamilies group, with about 1,600 species in 47 extant genera, including _ Dinoponera gigantea _ - one of the world's largest species of ant.

They are most easily identified from other subfamilies by a constricted gaster (abdomen). They are rare examples of stinging ants.
