Re: Ant ID

Need some more info, What country did you find it? How big is it? When did you find it? and maybe a clearer photo, as much info as you can offer even if it seems unhelpful.

Happy antkeeping!

Re: Ant Caught ?/1/18 Wellington ID needed

The Queen is roughly 7mm (my test tube was playing tricks on me before) And she was caught in January on a hot sunny day.

Thanks for the help!

Iridomyrmex Semi or Fully Claustral?

I have recently caught an Iridomyrmex queen, and by the way she is acting and looking, I wondered if she could be Semi-Claustral. Google has proven unhelpful on this subject so I'm asking here.

Thanks for any replies and help with this.

Iridomyrmex Sp.
Thanks, I never would have been able to figure that out on my own, especially since I completely forgot iridomyrmex existed!

I found this beauty in my garden (it is currently summer here in New Zealand) and popped her into a test tube setup, she is about 1cm in length (10mm). I used flash in the photo so please let me know if I need to provide an image without flash. Thx https://photos.app.goo.gl/r82oJBlo0oh87Gjv2 P.S Sor...

I caught this little ant roaming my bathroom, I put her in a test tube and she has laid eggs. She is small, around 5-8mm.
