This large green ant wandered into the house one night whilst we were staying in Thailand. It was solitary and we only ever saw this one. Any help with possible ID would be gratefully received.

Tree Ant

Many thanks for your ID. There were three Tree Ant nests in the trees around the house. I'm thinking O. smaragdina is probably right.

Green Tree ants

You're welcome. Very distinctive creatures, though Queens are usually deep in the nest!
