Re: Queen ID Please

Definitely looks like Camponotus. Can't say as to the species though.

Re: Queen Identification

I don’t have ruler that I know of but compared her size to a worker of a starting Tetramorium Immigrans worker and she is barely bigger than the workers. A small queen then, likely about 4mm. Unfortunately there are still dozens of genera to choose from given this information. We need clear detaile...

Re: Please help identify this Scottish ant

For a reliable ID we need better pictures and some extra information (see attached link). The best I can say right now is that it's possible this is a Camponotus worker, and most likely not a queen. But we need a length in mm and detailed close up images for better identification. Location of captur...

Re: Cute worker with a nasty sting

Got a better side profile shot.

This one also stung me so now my elbow hurts a lot. Apparently when they're angry but their target disappears they just sort of sit there in a blind rage so this one was easy to get photos of. I just wish I had my pro setup out here.

Re: Queen Identification

I'm not familiar with the species and it's really hard to identify any features. Are you able to provide pictures with detail? Also date and location are helpful.
Please follow this link.

Cute worker with a nasty sting

Once again I am curious about the local ants, and my ID key hasn't arrived in the mail yet. I took some pictures of one on my shirt. https://i.imgur.com/fQZouuo.jpg More pictures: https://imgur.com/gallery/eYw57S0 She's about 8mm long (judging by my belt loop in image 5 which is exactly 10mm wide) a...

3 Is Novomessor,6 Is Tetramourium Or Myrmica
6mm is a bit big for tetramorium, don't you think?

Re: Small desert workers ID

I think you might be right. That's really cool. I don't think they're truly honeypot ants but being in the same genus is cool.

Re: Southern Cali Worker ID

I would say definitely not Pheidole simply because of the color. Pheidole (at least the various species I've seen) tend to have a rough exoskeleton that is bright red or brown in color. These are smooth, shiny, and jet black, and their head shape isn't even close to Pheidole Harvester ants sounds pl...

Re: New antkeeper, had to dig up my own colony. PLEASE HELP IDENTIFY

I am really curious now. I hope he is able to crop and upload the images to imgur, Flickr, or photobucket so we can see them.
