Golden Tailed Spiny Ant

Polyrhachis (Hagiomyrma) sp., Polyrhachis ammon Subfamily Formicinae


They are black in colour with golden gaster (ant abdomen), moderately large (10 mm in body length), and have spines on mesosoma and petiole.


Regularly see this particular type in the grounds of my local church. This one and many others were scurrying along one of the cement paths near the church cemetery
