So at this point I currently own 5 colonies of Strumigenys, and since I'm constantly collecting more and plan on eventually getting colonies of tropical species (cordovensis, tigris, etc.), I should probably just make one journal for all of my colonies so I don't have to make tons more journals. Here's a list of my current colonies with links to older journals to catch you up:
- Strumigenys brevisetosa
- Strumigenys clypeata
- Strumigenys louisianae (x2)
- Strumigenys membranifera
- Strumigenys reflexa
- Strumigenys rostrata
So I did manage to collect that Strumigenys rostrata colony from the same rot hole I found the S. clypeata in. I believe I only got a portion of the colony, as colonies of rostrata are some of the largest among native Strumigenys, with upwards of around 200 workers and 3-5 queens. I only got 1 queen and around 10 workers, so there's almost certainly more to collect, which I will try and do tonight. In the meantime, here's some pictures of one of the workers. I'll try and get some of the colony itself later on.
