Kind of, but the gaster is not as layered, you know what I mean. Like my queen's gaster is smoother and kind of banded.

The gaster will look smoother once she has had enough to eat. It is basically made up out of hard bands of exoskeleton that extend and retract over/under each other.

What do you mean by kind of banded?
Also upload your pics to an imgur.com account and use that to post pics on the forum

So it is really pouring here in AZ. Do you guys think that if I go out tomorrow I will find some late fliers? If so, what species do you think I will find. I'm hoping for Prenolepis Imparis.

Isn't it way too late in the year for nuptual flights?

I finally have a second worker for my Crematogaster colony! She just was 'hatched' (it looked more like the queen was taking the mom approach at "get up you lazy kid it's time for school stop fighting me", picking her up and rotating her, prodding at her :lol: ) around 2am, and she is now slowly moving around the brood area. :D

Now let's see if I can even tell the two little girls apart once #2 gets her darker color in... :lol:
Ant-keeping newbie! Currently keeping one Crematogaster Laeviscula Queen (Helena, with seven workers, and lots of increasing brood amounts!). :D
