Found in SoCal, Tujunga at a park connected to a sandy trail at about 9 PM. The queen was on a tree when I caught her. She is about 10mm, all shiny black with some hairs on her gaster.

Looks like Camponotus Modoc or something like that. Definitely a Camponotus though. How long have you had her for? Looks like she's doing really great!


Currently raising: 

Myrmica Rubra (polygynous 2 queen + brood)

Camponotus Modoc (single queen + brood)

Camponotus Vicinus (two single queens + brood)

Lasius Niger (single queen + ~60+ workers)

Tetramorium immigrans (single queen)

Temporarily keeping IdioticMouse26's ants/tarantula until August 12th as he is away. Thanks IM26!

They are not. They don't have red legs nor to my knowledge are in SoCal. Thanks though.

The name change happened once (Mackay, 2019) with C. quercicola being synonimized into C. laevigatus and a new taxon described for what many people erroneously IDed as C. laevigatus. This is C. laevigatus - C. laevissimus looks nothing like this at all.

 

They are not. They don't have red legs nor to my knowledge are in SoCal. Thanks though.

There is three known populations of C. modoc in Southern California.

My bad, but this isn't modoc, right?
