1. North Island of NZ, in my backyard
2. 8th. Nov 2023
5. Black all over
6. Relatively long gaster
7. Sluggish, flies as a 'last resort'
9. Most likely earlier today or yesterday
Thanks for any help!
Bonus diapause question:
The species I currently have are Iridomyrmex sp. and O. glaber. These are both australian species that don't hibernate, but since they're in New Zealand (A colder climate) will they need hibernation?
Again, thanks for any help!
