Ant Music

First ants on the board with a Red Ant (Myrmica rubra) in a yoghurt pot pitfall trap and a nest of Yellow Meadow Ant (Lasius flavus) disturbed yesterday.

Sadly since I've left my phone at home no photos of the latter for the moment.

Myrmica rubra - red Ant

A few more species have been thrown on the pile so we're comfortably over a third of the way there. I'll post a roundup later today

333 Myrmica rubra Red Ant
334 Lasius flavus Yellow Meadow Ant
335 Philoscia muscorum Common Striped Woodlouse
336 Protaphorura armata A springtail
337 Trichoniscus pusillus Common Pygmy Woodlouse
