The ant’s life cycle passes through egg, larva, pupa and adult phases. Almost every ant is born female. The eggs hatch into small grubs, which grow into a particular caste (most are workers, then soldiers). The queen bull ant leaves the nest at night to forage and supplement the food supply for her progeny (baby bull ants).

Melophorus is an exceptionally diverse ant genus from arid Australia that has received little taxonomic attention, such that just a fraction of its remarkable number of species is described. The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization’s Tropical Ecosystems Research Centre (TERC) in Darwin holds by far the most extensive collection of Melophorus, and as of September The ant genus Onychomyrmex belongs to the primitive ponerine tribe Amblyoponini.

Its species are known to have an army ant or legionary life style (; Robert Taylor personal communication; Hölldobler unpublished observations), in which both mass foraging for small arthropods and colony emigration are highly coordinated.

The colonies are monogynous and the queens are dichthadiiform. The Biodiversity Heritage Library works collaboratively to make biodiversity literature openly available to the world as part of a global biodiversity community.

The identifying ants to genus-level are not impossible, because excellent identification-key to ant genera of the all parts of the world is available in Bolton (). Thus, for sorting ant specimens into morphospecies, they should be identified to genus (i.e., “ Ant species 1 and species 2 to ”“Aenictus sp.

1 and Camponotus sp.1”). Harvester ants (Messor, Pogonomyrmex) store grass, seeds, or berries in the nest, whereas ants of the genus Trachymyrmex of South America eat only fungi, which they cultivate in their nests.
