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.

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