Queen Ant Composite


So over the last year we've collected a number of images of queen ants as we've been collecting them. We posted a small collage on our facebook page during the week of Myrmecia queens and we thought it would be interesting to see a visual of the different types of queens we've found this year.

So we created this composite of all of the queens we've photographed along with a common black house ant on the bottom. 

Species shown are as follows;

1. Myrmecia pyriformis

2. Myrmecia simillima

3. Camponotus intrepidus

4. Oecophylla smaragdina

5. Myrmecia fulvipes

6. Myrmecia pilosula

7. Odontomachus sp.

8. Aphaenogaster longiceps

9. Solenopsis geminata

10. Iridomyrmex sp.

11. Anonychomyrma sp.

12. Iridomyrmex bicknelli

13. Doleromyrma darwiniana

14. Monomorium sp.

15. Iridomyrmex bicknelli worker
