  • NOTEBY J.Longino: Lowland rainforest. Trail between Pterocarpus swamp and horse pasture: a tight, rapidly moving Labidus column emerged from a hole, went about 3m across the path, and entered a second hole. I passed it first at 0638hrs, and it was still going strong at 0728hrs. A rough estimate of flow rate was 400 ants per minute, making a minimum colony size of 20,000. Trail between Llorona and Rio Corcovado. Solenopsis altinodis: workers on red Aphelandra inflorescence. Crem parabiotica: a Piper shrub had some leafy galls. Older, dead galls formed small balls of brown leaves on the plant. One such dead gall had what appeared to be a crop of Piper seedlings growing out of it. A dead gall and the dead gall with seedlings had Crem. workers inside, but no brood. Pseudomyrmex: I collected 5 workers from each of 3 Acacia (alleni?) plants along the trail.
