The following specimens have been collected in Gainesville and are currently available for sale statewide (nationwide shipping available with proper documentation, experienced in legal intrastate shipping, 526's etc).


For most queens/colonies the stated price includes USPS priority shipping to your location, however certain larger colonies housed in glass formicaria are available only for pick up at my location, travel outside a 10 mile radius will result in an increased price.


Shipping is available Monday through Friday. All orders will be shipped before 5pm on same day as long as payment is recieved before 12pm, if payment is recieved outside of these hours, the order will be shipped the following business day before 5pm.

To clarify, P metallescens are not polygynous, but do found colonies via pleometrosis
