Hey all!
I'm making a new post because I can't find any pictures of Dolichoderus scrobiculatus queens online.

So here is a document of the one I found in my back yard.

I have never seen one of those queens before. I see a lot of D. scrobiculatus workers but yet to see a queen so I am a little jealous.

Thank you for the offer but I am not able to keep any ants at the moment. I just have to be content with finding them and photographing them for now.

I know some Dolichoderus are semi-claustral, is that the case with this species?

I have no idea. But going by the size of her abdomen and the rate of which she laid eggs, I would say no. Most likely fully Claustral. BUT I will give her some honey and maybe protein later just to make sure.

Some more pictures of the Dolichoderus Scrobiculatus Queen. She has started to lay eggs! I'm REALLY happy right now hahaha.

After this, I will post any updates of her on my main journal as this was for documenting with some pictures not taken before.
Or if you would like to see a separate journal just for this Queen, let me know.
