Field NotesNOTEBY J.Longino: #3363: Dendromyrmex; where SHA crosses stream between CC and SSO; carton nest under leaf of Guateria (?; plant det. by D. Brenes); entire nest collected alive in plastic bag. [There were no other nests that I could find on the tree or surrounding vegetation. The nest was thus either the entire colony, or one nest of a highly dispersed polydomous colony. Nest transfered to petri dish in lab, kept at ambient temperature, given minimal care. Nest gradually declined. I kept all adults as they died. Total nest contents (adult ants): 32 females, 1 male. All females looked like workers, with relatively low size variation, and none with ocelli. Thus the nest appeared to be queenless, and there was no chance for queen escape. Nest contained three syrphid larvae of different sizes. The largest pupated soon after nest capture, the second largest pupated several days later at a smaller size. The smallest larva was preserved in alcohol. The smaller pupa died. An adult syrphid emerged from the larger pupa on 28 March.]
