  1. Igor, I think that 3 is a major worker of Pheidole sp. 4 – seems to me – possibly is a worker of Atta laevigata. 5 is a worker of Oecophylla longinoda.

  2. a-5 Weaver ant, obviously nests in leaves that are weaved together.
    b-3 Pogonomyrmex sp. the entrance and out area looks familiar.
    c-1 Pheidole sp. not to sure about this one.
    d-6 Camponotus sp. again, not to sure about this one. I’m confident in the other picks and this pair were the last two left.
    e-2 Crematogaster sp. so I’m going to say this one live in the thorny tree.
    f-4 Atta sp. has huge nests so obviously 4.

  3. A=5 Oecophylla
    B=1 Pogonomyrmex
    C=3 Pheidole
    D=6 Camponotus
    E=2 Crematogaster
    F=4 Atta

    I’m late, and my guess looks like everybody else’s. No shirt for me!
