Hello. These ants were caught very gently today in Portland, Oregon. Caught in the window screen, they basically walked into the test tubes.
From mandible to end of gaster they measure 15mm (Is this normal?? Largest ants I've ever seen in my life). They also have really long legs so I thought they were wasps until I noticed they were horrible flyers. Appreciate any advice.
Catch date: June 22
Habitat: Suburbs with lots of forest
Length: I used a ruler. 15mm is accurate
