Yeah I think these should be reclassified to Colobopsis yogi.

I hope that anyone finding this species will consider making sure that any dead specimens get donated to an appropriate museum collection as there are not a huge number of specimens in collections esp from locations other than those already known.

Do you feel like you got the confirmation? Was this a Yogi?  Also I'd love an update on how she did!

Colony is still alive! This year, the queen decide to lay a ton of eggs. They are slow growing for sure though.




They may have decided to change this to Colobopsis yogi

Oh they did change it. Why don't they just change all the phragmotic camponotus?
Colony wish list:

Lasius latipes
Harpagoxenus canadensis
Temnothorax Americanus
Myrmica semiparasitica
Any formica microgyna group sp.
