I'm guessing probably not.


I notice that your C. maritimus are very similar to these. Maybe just some morphological differences belonging to this genetic strain? I have noticed something like this in certain Formica.

We'll find out what they are once I get workers, particularly majors.

Two of these queens got their first workers about a week ago. They are quite small, just like Camponotus anthrax.

I decided not to keep any of these, and discontinue the journal.

Update 8-12-2023
 
I found another one of these on 4-9-2023 around 9:00 PM while collecting Camponotus us-ca02 queens. It was pretty close to where I found the last ones. We still don't know exactly what these are, but we're pretty sure they're not C. anthrax.

 

As you can see, they have very hairy faces.

So far this colony only has three workers.

This colony has four workers now and a small pile of brood. It doesn't seem to be growing very fast.

Maybe things are slowing down already for the year? It’s getting pretty cool already.

It's always the same temperature in the area of my apartment where I keep non-desert ants like these.

I’ve noticed since I switched my C. sansabeanus to a small starter formicarium they have slowed down a bit compared to when they were in a test tube. Could be something similar?
