Hey all!
 

​I wanted to make a thread about lists of ants found in your area. As I'm new to ant keeping, I've found it fun to try and identify what kind of ants live on my 4 acre property.

Here is the list. Not all have ID's as I haven't find them yet.  :blush:  :D 

 

Polyrhachis ornata - found one trail. can't find it any more. EDIT: Saw another worker so they are still around.
Polyrhachis Daemeli - Found one Queen.
Polyrhachis Ammon - Or might be P. brisbanensis. They are everywhere on my property. Like everywhere...
Polyrhachis Vermiculosa - few colony scatted around.
Rhytidoponera metallica - EVERYWHERE GOSH! 
Strobe Ant - Opisthopsis sp. One kind is EVERYWHERE and another kind I've only found a few nests.
Camponotus Aeneopilosus - EVERYWHERE GOSH! They swam like mad when disturbed. 

Camponotus Humilior over 5+ colonies on my property.

Camponotus Elegans - few colonies scattered around.

Ochetellus glaber - Seen a worker almost anywhere.

Black Crazy Ants - EVERYWHERE GOSH!

Brachyponera lutea - found one queen under a rock by her self. (is now in a test tube with larva.
Myrmecia Chrysogaster -  Found one wandering Queen.
Iridomyrmex Purpureus - Bloody pests and travel over 100m for food. However they do help with killing termites.
Technomyrmex albipes - Black ones. heart shape gaster.
Camponotus sp. - Few different kinds. Haven't found ID yet.
Many different Pheidole sp. colony's everywhere.
Yellow 3mm queen ants. They make such small colony's as the workers are like 1-2mm long.  I've found many times a single colony can live under one leaf. Don't know the ID.
Notoncus capitatus - spotted a few places
Lioponera sp.
Tetraponera tucurua and/or Tetraponera punctulata
Tetramorium bicarinatum
Found a few more unidentified small ants. One is 3-4mm long, black with a silver abdomen. looks like a sugar ant.
Another is 2.5mm long, all black with a red abdomen, body is over all chunky in looks. 

 
I live around the Gympie area of Queensland Australia.

Iridomyrmex Bicknelli - No Surprise

Man your places is like a treasure trove of much wanted aussie ants.
Come Nuptial flight season for the bull ants you have a chance to get a very nice catch.
I'm looking/waiting for Polyrhachis hookeri to become available online to buy. Seems to be out of stock most places right now.

Looks like Nylanderia kreapelini but twice as big and browner and shinier. Also seems to be mostly diurnal.

I guess it's Prenolepis because I just remembered that they have cocooned pupae.
