Tonight’s challenge tests your knowledge of Cephalotes, one of my favorite genera of ants.
Your questions are:
1. Which of the above species are you most likely to encounter in the habitat pictured in the top photograph? (6 points).
2. Most turtle ant species have distinct major and minor worker castes, but two of these do not. Name them (2 points each).
The cumulative points winner for the month of February will win their choice of:
1) A guest post here on Myrmecos
2) Any 8×10 print from my insect photography galleries
3) A myrmecos t-shirt
