Wow! Beautiful picture and ants, you Australians have all the best ants like these big headed girls. Hope you get a queen of these ants.

Dorymyrmex insanus is superior to all others. 

Vive le roi!  I am a staunch traditionalist-conservative.

Acanthomyrmex ants are tropical and from the Indo-Malayan region mostly.


They have very small colony sizes, but the major workers are pretty top heavy, matched only in Pheidole by species such as Pheidole absurda.

I currently maintain a site dedicated to the study of Pheidole megacephala:


The Pheidole megacephala Journal
