Founding type: Claustral
Size: Medium. Queen ~1cm, workers ~5mm
Diet: Do not require feeding until workers arrive. Feed a mix of small protein and sugars.
Set-up: Test tube up until 15-30 workers. Then move to small nest and outworld.This is a truly remarkable ant species. They have huge leg muscles, unlike any other species. They are generally very placid and shy in nature and are arboreal, so will benefit from having access to bark or timber in their set up.
We do not come across many of these beautiful queens but they are definitely one of our favourites!
