The Monday mystery returns!


Above is a cropped photograph of a Belizean ant.

1. What is the genus? (2 points)
2. What is the species (3 points)
3. Why is the right side of the picture redder than the left side? (5 points).

Points will be awarded to first person to correctly guess each question, and the cumulative points winner across all mysteries for the month of February will win their choice of 1) any 8×10-sized print from my insect photography galleries, or 2) a guest post here on Myrmecos.

Good luck!
