Size charts

Hello AntsCanada Forumees!

I am looking for a good resource that categorizes different ant species based on size (preferably North American ant species). I would even be happy with a basic small, medium, large reference/list. Is anyone familiar with this kind of a resource in existence?

Also could anyone tell me off-hand which Southern California ant species are the largest or at least have queens larger than 12mm or workers larger than 5mm? I'm sure this includes many species of Camponotus and Pogonomyrmex. I'd love a more exhaustive list. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank You!

Hawkeye
