New gallery at Diacamma

Diacamma sp. worker (Cambodia)

Ant researchers from the University of Illinois have returned from an ambitious Cambodia expedition with new lab animals. They are intended for studies of venom chemistry and mandible biomechanics, but I took a few hours on Tuesday to employ them as photographic subjects. First up is a genus I’d never before seen alive: Diacamma. Click the genus name to visit the new gallery.
