Ant 4 - Odontomachus brunneus - male

Ant 4 - Odontomachus brunneus - Male
Charlotte County, Florida, USA
June 10, 2011
Size: 5.5 mm
Collected at UV light.

Ocelli very large. Size would be closer to 6 - 6.5 mm if not curled up.

Moved
One look at an image of a worker and you'll see why identifying male ants can be such a challenge.

 
Wow
thanks, I wouldn't have thought it was that!
