A very small brown ant about 4 or 5 mm long with a large head, a thorax that tapered posteriorly and a shiny golden abdomen. The fascinating aspect of the ant were its legs - the femurs were thick, part brown and part black. The tibiae were blade-like.
Spotted on the forest floor in a nature reserve.
This spotting is for documentation only. The photos have very little clarity. The ant was active but slow, crawling across and under dry leaves.
This ant was much smaller than species in the reference material.
