Another species within the genus Colobopsis is within my ownership, this time Colobopsis impressa, and unlike my Colobopsis obliqua, these guys have a queen! I found them at my park inside of some hollow vines. I was looking for where that colony of Camponotus snellingi could be as I have seen workers foraging, and I cracked open a hollow vine and found a good size colony of what I thought were Crematogaster ashmeadi, but they turned out to be Colobopsis! I thought they were Colobopsis obliqua at first, but I took a closer look at the head of one of the majors and noticed that their head was slightly concave as opposed to being completely flat. These were not Colobopsis obliqua, they were Colobopsis impressa, a new species for me! I decided to blow through one of the twig pieces while I was on the sidewalk, and the individual that popped out was non other than the queen! She was just gorgeous! I got them home and collected about thirty or so workers, a small colony probably about two years of age. I plan on housing these girls in a hollow twig, and I can't wait to see how things go for them. Here are some nice pictures of a major and the queen:
