  1. Saying of male alates… is there a technical term for male alates? I mean, female reproductives are differentiated into queens, gynes, dealates, alates, ergatoid, gamergate, etc., but did the myrmecologists of the 20th century never come up with a specific term for the males?

  3. Hey Alex, keep up all the beautiful work! I have been coming to your websites for references for years. Hopefully in the near future I will be obtaining my own macro lens. I can’t wait to see what I can do with it and some eye for detail. You have inspired more people than you know. Thanks again.
