We're currently working on a key for California Camponotus at Cal Academy, and we're hoping to get specimens donated from the community. Right now, we are missing specimens of: absquatulator, dumetorum, fragilis, johnsoni, maccooki, maritimus, us-ca02, anthrax queens, bakeri, clarithorax, essigi, sayi, and yogi. We would also be interested in semitestaceus and sansabeanus specimen. We would need collection information for the specimen, so please respond to this google form if you would like to contribute:
Feel free to DM for questions! This is a really great chance for the community to show that we are capable of advancing scientific endeavors and increase opportunities available to us. Another benefit is simply being able to ID Camponotus
Edit: did I mention your contributions will be acknowledged?
