Mystery Ants

Now that I have a convenient camera, I am going to institute a new page on my site -- the Mystery Ant page. I will post a few quick and dirty photos of specimens that I need help on. Hopefully there will be folks out there who recognize some of them and together we can harness the power of the internet for the betterment of all. Yay! Come and play!


  1. Can't be certain, but the first male is certainly a Cerapachyine, probably Sphinctomyrmex. The second male looks like Hypoponera. Did you say it had a single tibial spur? That might clinch it.

  2. Thanks! I now think the first one is a Cylindromyrmex.
