Re: South Florida 10/16

Thanks, after looking more into the Pheidoles, it seems to be a great match, especially for the Pheidole dentata. Same measurements and the appearance seems right. Thanks again everyone!

Re: South Florida 10/16

Measured again today and the earlier measurements of about 3 mm is correct, it's a bit difficult to measure these fellas considering their size.
