Species: Formcia cf. rufa
Location: Denmark, Nordjylland, Dall Hede.
Date: May 19th 2019.
Time: Around 15:00.
Temperature: About 17 to 20C, sunny, but only after 14:30.
Wind: ~2 m/s, SW.
Rain: About two days ago.
Felt warm and humid.
Observed lots of newly mated queens, but no males.
I thought Formica tended to mate later in the year. Interesting.
It depends on location, species.
