Taxonomic History (provided by Barry Bolton, 2015)

Camponotus (Colobopsis) obliquus Smith, 1930d PDF: 567 (s.) U.S.A. Nearctic. AntCat AntWiki HOL


Ozarks and Ozark border counties


Habitat: Arboreal, C. obliquus seems to prefer nesting in preformed hollows in tree twigs and stems of shrubs such as elderberry.

Natural History: Unlike most of our Camponotus, alates of this and other Colobopsis are reared in spring and fly in early summer. Females occasionally may be attracted to lights after 22:00 hr on warm, dry nights. I have collected queens at a black light, and stray workers in an elderberry thicket.
