8. Nest description:
- I am pretty familiar with the area that I found her in. There are a few camponotus sp. / tetramorium sp. nests near by. However, given the queen's size, I can only imagine that the works for this species are tiny as hell, so I am not surprised that I haven't seen the nest before.
9 . Pictures:
- I will take more pictures, if needed, when I return home today. It was late and I was tired so I didn't take a ton of images
