Crematogaster sp

Crematogaster or acrobat ants are mostly small (of less than 3 millimeters which constitute the majority of the species of this location) to average size ants (3 to 7 millimeters) ants. Similar to Oecophyla, Crematogaster turns its gaster upward and forward to eject it formic acid at a prey or an enemy. Nearly all Crematogaster are arboreal ants spending the bulk of their foraging on plants and trees. Most species also have their nest in trees though the nests are started underground by the founding gyne. The larger size species are more aggressive and protective of their turf and not just their honeydew supply.

This species is monomorphic. This species is around 2 millimeters (without the bloated gaster).
