Field NotesNOTEBY J.Longino: Roadside veg. Ex 4m tall Triplaris melaenodendron. Populous colony, workers emerged onto trunk when I climbed tree. 1km below San Luis turnoff. Patch of Triplaris. Three taller (4m tall) trees contained ants. There were numerous stump sprouts along road edge, but none contained any founding queens. The largest branch segments I examined from this tree were 3cm dia., and still contained hollow internodes with ants. A large basal section, 3cm dia., contained relatively few workers and scattered mealybugs, no scale insects. Exit holes were still maintained through 1cm of wood. I dissected 180cm of occupied branch. There were abundant brood, workers, carton partitions, exit holes, much like #2956. There were scattered alate queens, and at least one male. Unlike #2956, there was no trace of pink scale insects, and mealybugs were widespread and common.
