Hello everyone!
Yesterday I went out into the woodlands closest to my home and found a Stigmatomma pallipes queen and a Proceratium sp. queen (still to be ID'd)
I couldn't get any photos of the Stigmatomma queen as she wouldn't stay still, but I did for the Proceratium queen. I'm just going to put all and any Cryptic ants I find in this journal to make it easy for everyone!

This is my first time with founding Proceratium so if anyone has tips I would appreciate it! 😁

I made a new test tube for her so that she's easier to watch and photograph, as well as feed.

TMK he is done with his mission now. He returned to the forum briefly a few weeks ago.


Hi there! I went on a 6 month or so hiatus, in part due, and in part cause of the death of my colonies. 

However, I went back to the Sierras, and restarted my collection, which is now as follows:

Aphaenogaster uinta, Camponotus vicinus, Camponotus modoc, Formica cf. aserva, Formica cf. micropthalma, Formica cf. manni, Formica subpolita, Formica cf. subaenescens, Lasius americanus, Manica invidia, Pogonomyrmex salinus, Pogonomyrmex sp. 1, Solenopsis validiuscula, & Solenopsis sp. 3 (new Sierra variant).

I actually met up with him in person and can verify he is back out on his mission in Mexico.
