Re: Help choosing gear pack please!

Awesome! I'm hoping to get started again too! Camponotus spp. are my favorite!

Re: What queen ant is this?

Yeah, a clearer picture would be needed to ID but that isn't a queen. I'm gonna throw out Ponera sp. as a guess.

It's more of experience and remembrance for me :ugeek:. Antweb is a great source though, they are more accurate and specific with their information too.
Okay, cool! Well, we all appreciate the expertise. Do you have a professional background in this?

Re: Tetramorium flights CA

Tetramorium spp. only come up to California on http://antmaps.org/?mode=diversity&genus=Tetramorium. Dunno. No experience with them.

Re: 5mm queen caught mid-May in NJ. Please help ID

Lasius americanus looks like a good match to me. TheRealAntMan IDed a bunch flying around that part of the country. Earliest nuptial flights of Lasius spp., he says.

On antmaps.org it says that C. Pennsylvanicus is found in Idaho
Antmaps also used to think Lasius nearcticus and Lasius umbratus :roll: were the same species and a bunch of other bull. So not the most reliable source.
Can you let me in on the good sources?
