    Is it bad that they posted the exact location it was found too? I know the location of some ants are kept secrete for … reasons that escape me.

    Yeah, I thought about that too. The label information is not exact, though, the coordinates are given only to the nearest degree. I suspect the point on the map reflects the rounding error on the label, and the actual site is somewhere within a few kilometers.

The site is currently under maintenance and will be back shortly. New comments have been disabled during this time, please check back soon.
