Colobopsis sp. has always been one of my dream genera as I love their phragmotic majors and how they are so specialized to live inside of hollow twigs. I've always had some great formicarium design ideas, and I finally found a nest, but the problem is that it was a satellite nest with no queen. I found the nest in a hollow twig of a Fraxinus americana tree in my front yard. The tree is very small and has lost all of its leaves, so the main nest shouldn't be too difficult to find, but until then, I have a nice satellite nest with 23 minors, 5 majors, and some brood in various stages of development. I hope to find the main nest soon. Their current formicarium is a CD case with a hollow Phytolacca americana stem glued against the plastic so I can see what they are doing. I plan to get them in a better formicarium soon though, preferably something with a little more height to it. These ants are beautiful and I hope I can find the queen and the res of the colony soon. Here are some pictures of them:
