Diacamma rugosum.


Common name: 'The Queenless Ponerine Ant.'
    This is a very easy species to keep in captivity. It accepts a wide range of food and can be kept at normal room temperature.
    There is also the additional advantage that mature colonies are not very large - so they will not need a large enclosure.
    Warning: Be wary of buying colonies that only have 20-30 workers from other traders - as this size colony does not exist naturally and it is highly likely you are being sold a normal colony that has simply been split into two to maximise profits. It is hence also likely that there would be no gamergate present.
