Hi Guys! I'm new to this forum and also new in Ant Keeping.

I have a few workers of Stigmatomma maculata and I assume that they have a gamergate system.

I would like to ask if anyone here cared for or is successful in keeping this species.

I would like to hear some tips and suggestion on how to take care of them. Thank you!

That's why I can't find anything about this ant. There was a mistake in the ID. Will look for taxonomic notes about this species. Thanks Bro!
