Ant found in Melbourne. Thought it might be a queen until I got it into the light.

Camponotus sp. not sure exactly which, though. I'll have to get back to you on that later.
First year and already enjoying it!

Founding:
1 Solenopsis molesta colony with ~10 nanitic workers and lots of brood

Genesis 1:24
