@Hernandez
Thanks for asking question on the ants.
A little research on the web indicated that its the green tree ant and is commonly used as a way of pest control in cashew plantations.
I have created separate spotting for that

@Hernandez
No idea about the anys.
Perhaps need to create a separate spotting page to identify that.

@Sigg. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction with respect to identification.
Perhaps someone else might know the exact species.
Have changed name on top

@Neil
Thanks for comment. I'd never put so much thought into cashews myself, until I stumbled upon this tree during one of my travels.

I had already found the info about misspelling on wiki and made correction on the top. Thanks for confirming though :).

@Chester
Elsewhere (on a different forum) the above bug has been suggested to be a pill
millipede (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pill_millip...) which are apparently very similar and can be confused with pill bugs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armadillidi...).
I am inclined to the pill millipede classification based on the look of the segments. Let me know what you think.
