Here’s a challenge to test your molecular and your morphological mettle:
Myrmecos points will be awarded for the first correct answers to the following questions:
1. Which of the following animals is the most likely source for this sequence? (6 points)
2. Although our mystery sequence was isolated from one of these animals, a more ancient source for the sequence comes from a quite different group of organisms. What are they? (4 points)
The cumulative points winner across all mysteries for the month of August 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, and… um, have a blast!
