Dorylus helvolus, KZN, South Africa
Last night the internet arrived at our new house. I’ve celebrated the occasion by tackling the backlog of photo uploads.
Over at myrmecos.net the South Africa photos are starting to go up. The first batch covers Dorylus helvolus, a subterranean predatory ant. Meanwhile, the fine art galleries at www.alexanderwild.com have also been beefed up with new material, including some stylized ant portraiture and the first of the Illinois scarabs.
On an unrelated note, Jo-anne has been sending along updates from the famous Ant Course in Venezuela. Word is that they’re doing well in the jungle, dancing salsa and collecting rare oddities like Probolomyrmex and Cylindromyrmex. Jo-anne is promising a guest post on the course when she gets back next week, and this time we’re going to hold her to her word, we swear.
