Ant identification: March 2013 Archives

Dear Ant Team,

I photograph insects...but I do not know ants. Can you help me identify the following species? Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Josef

Josef,

Beautiful images!

The species pictured are most likely (1) Aphaenogaster simonellii, (2) Messor meridionalis, and (3) Cataglyphis nodus.

These IDs were determined with the assistance of guest experts (and AntWeb's own Ants of Greece curators) Drs. Anastasios Legakis and Chris Georgiadis. Feel free to check out the Greece Ants page (linked above) to learn more about the ant fauna from this region.

Thanks for your interest!
