Look at that bloated gaster on the worker at the back, first time I've seen that. Probably the one eating the roach a few days ago :)

I captured what looks like a Polyrhachis femorata worker stumbling out of Iridomyrmex nest in my backyard!

he poly ant - looks like a femorata, but different from my current colony, all brown legs, instead of upper red.
She curled up into a ball and froze, feigned dead, while her limbs shivered :)
