The leptogenys binghamii died from dehydration, while the leptogenys rufida never actually ate anything so those are gone too. The leptogenys kitelli are still alive and kicking. The anochetus queen has several fuzzy larvae in her test tube. The diacamma have 4 pupae.

Nope, ergatoid queens and gamergates are different. To catch them, I scoop up the entire colony, because they live in loose soil/leaflitter.

I caught this colony near my school, with 1 queen, 15 workers 1 larvae and 12 eggs, they eat crickets every day and it is very entertaining to watch them as they only eat moving prey.
