  • NOTEBY J.Longino, NOTEDATE 24-Jun-94: Collecting in old treefall, Sendero Chomogo, 1700m. Acromyrmex column carrying mostly flower petals. Solitary ponerines under epiphyte mat. Simopelta traveling in short columns across the surface of a moss mat. I initially disturbed them, then watched for about one hour. The columns seemed to move back and forth over roughly the same path, disappearing at both ends into the epiphytes. I saw only two ants carrying anything: smll hairy larvae; both collected. Afterwards I dug through the epiphytes, but I could find no central nest or brood, just scattered workers.
