Re: Hi all

:shock:
Meant no offence, I did believe you over the antwiki anyway. Just trying to help with what tools I can find and with what I can see. Its always best to leave it to the pros anyway. I can never be a doc with web MD just as I cant be a ant specialist with antwiki :)

Re: Question for Batspiderfish

I am new as well butI seem to end up looking at this website because you can get a list of species by country:

www.antwiki.org

Re: Hi all

The second pic is the best I could get, by the rear leg. I will try some more when she positions herself just right.
