Collection notes: NOTEBY J.Longino: 2200hrs, Pheidole biconstricta: behind house, hundreds of minors and majors were swarming in the middle of a short oil palm; a column was moving between that and a stump about 4m away. I saw the head and gaster of a Camponotus (like #9) being carried toward the stump. Pheidole (black species): on Omphalea leaf between grass pasture and Pterocarpus swamp, about 10 minors and one major carrying a dead moth. Camponotus novogranadensis: near the house at beach edge, nesting in a dead petiole of an oil palm. Camponotus cf. subtillisimus: loose column running across the trail near the Pterocarpus swamp. Neivamyrmex: path between Pterocarpus swamp and horse pasture, a rapidly moving column, with brood.
