Added: 22nd June 2013 Description:
large 4 winged insect. definitely not a flying ant. wrong wings wrong feelers wrong eyes wrong weather. too cold and the only one ever seen !
more than twice the size of a wood ant
Confidence: I'm as sure as I can be. Notes: I offered this picture near the date of capture and it was wrongly tagged as a flying ant. but the weather was cold and overcast and low humidity. the insect was in isolation, no swarm, and no wind.
I would appeal to the experts amongst us to have another close look as I desperately need a solid identification
Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain. Notes: I think it is a male ant of the genus Formica. The antennae are basically right, but it is holding them straight. The wing venation also seems basically OK. But I could be wrong!
No interactions present.
