Re: Worker ID Please - In Ecuador (Specifically Cuenca)

Are you able to get better photos? A side and front profile will help.

Re: Queen ID please

Looks like Formica to me but I can't narrow down the species.

Re: worker ID please

All of these are difficult to identify due to poor lighting, but few genera in North America get as big as 1cm other than Camponotus.

Re: Kentucky Queen Identification

Can't see the photos. You may need to modify your photobucket account.

Tetramorium fits, but we'll need clear photos for an accurate ID.

Re: Found this ant, is it a queen?

Looks like a queen, fully claustral too, so she'll be fine with just water in a test tube. Yes, that hump is where her wings were. If you look closely there should be scars on the sides near the top, where she ripped them off. Can you try to get some clearer photos of her, from the side, top, and fr...
