  • Collection notes:
  • NOTEBY J.Longino: night walk along trail that skirts south side of estuary, looping around to road. Main nocturnal ant foragers were Azteca instabilis on tree trunks, Dolichoderus lutosus on vegetation. Foraging ants on the ground were sparse except for one spot that was a "hot spot" with many ants, mainly a common Pheidole. #3431-s: first set of strays, up to hot spot on trail. Crem. were mainly on mangrove trunks (a few from upland veg.). Ectatomma tuberculatum were clustered on an inflorescence of the Aphelandra with nectaries on floral bracts. Trail hotspot was dominated by larger Pheidole in colln, which were emerging in large numbers from cracks and holes in the soil. This area had large numbers of dead Pachycondyla lying on the trail surface. There were mostly intact, simply lying dead and dry on the surface - dozens of them.
