Camponotus sp.

Camponotus sp.


Hymenoptera, family Formicidae. This ant is of considerable size. Completely black, with reddish legs.


I took this picture inside the National Park Calillegua, Jujuy, in the border with the Caimancito Oil and Gas Field. I was crossing a stream of water and this ant was alone over a white stone. I can't realize how it gets there. Maybe swimming on the surface of the water.


this genre is broadly spread in Argentina. I couldn't identify the higher level of taxonomy from this picture.
