Leafcutter ants cut and process fresh vegetation (leaves, flowers, and grasses) to serve as the nutritional substrate to cultivate fungus. The fungus is used to feed the ant larvae, and the adult ants feed off the leaf sap. There are 47 species of leafcutter ants in two genera: Atta and Acromyrmex. I have no idea which species this is.
