On June 17, 2018, at 8:00 AM, I found a queen in my pool that looked to be some kind of Monomorium at first glance. I later identified her as Temnothorax pergandei. This species is unique when compared with other North American Temnothorax because they have a more leggy appearance and therefore look a lot more like Monomorium or Solenopsis than Temnothorax.
By June 20, she had shed most of her wings and laid her first egg. I did not take pictures on that day.
June 30, 2018
This is her today. She has shed all four wings and has 10 eggs and 2 larvae. She is very prolific compared to the T. curvispinosus queens I had last year.
