Hi guys,

 

First time poster here (although I've been stalking these forums for a while now).

 

I am in Sydney, Australia and it is winter here. I've caught a few of these queens at night time. They are similar in size to the local Australian Iridomyrmex Bicknelli queens (roughly 7-8mm) however these queens have a a larger head. 

 

Any help appreciated, and thanks in advance!

Please embed your photos. Many, including myself, will not click on outside links. :D

Upload your photo through imgur, then go (on the web, not on the app) to your imgur photo gallery. Then, click on the photo you want to upload and there should be a drop down menu that says “link”. Scroll to the one that says “direct link” and then copy and paste the link into your reply or comment. (I do this all on my phone, so it may be different for a computer, congrats on finding a queen though! :D)
Yep, I got no colonies, takin a fresh start!
