Myrmecos

An oddity

mystery2

This odd little beast crawled out of a leaf litter sample from a mesic oak/pine forest in Florida. Ten points to the first person who picks what it is.

(Not sure what you’ll do with ten points.  But hey.  You’re all a creative lot.)

    Hypoponera punctatissima?

    Darn!

    MrILTA beat me to it, and I really needed those points!

    The oddity here is that this is a male ant, worker-like in form, rather than the usual winged and waspy sort.

    I support the Hypoponera. But I’ll go for another species just so I have some chances for those 10 points!

    Hypoponera opaciceps
