  • NOTEBY J.Longino: canopy of emergent oak near Calvert house. 0900: acromyrmex A huge swarm of males occurred above the canopy of this tree; a fascinating sight, hilltopping in ants. There were hundreds of dancing alates in the air above the highest branches of the tree. I later found many new dealate queens running on the road from Tract-X down to our house [Carlos & Liddys'], suggesting recent mating activity.
