Update 4-20-2020

 

Well I guess I'm gonna give this another try. I just collected two more queens in Landcaster, CA over the weekend. I dug up tons of their founding chambers, but they are so tiny it's almost impossible to find them in the dirt.

 

Are Ph. barbata major workers repletes?

Since one died, I was able to get some microscope pictures.

Their gasters look pretty fat, could be promising for sugar or protein storage.
