Tiny yellow ants

Observation - Tiny yellow ants - Southern Africa. Description: I collected these this morning at Cape Point and was embarrassed to find that under better magnification [200x vs 60x] they have tiny little eyes after all. The body is almost transparent so the colour is tough to reproduce. I had only ever found Anoplole

I collected these this morning at Cape Point and was embarrassed to find that under better magnification [200x vs 60x] they have tiny little eyes after all. The body is almost transparent so the colour is tough to reproduce. I had only ever found Anoplolepis steingroeveri in the littoral zone before, but that's where these minute little girls [1.5mm] were, with Anoplolepis and Camponotus niveosetosus nearby in the same habitat. I think this drawing is much better than my previous effort and it will appear on www.ants.org.za asap
