Particularities: These ants are so hairy that they are almost furry and thus reminiscent of the Meranoplus species. This species looks quite similar to Camponotus selen; its red colouring is however prettier. They tend to be fairly tranquil, but get panicky when their nest is disturbed. Their hairiness probably prevents other ants from being able to grab them. They are quite passive and smaller colonies are well-suited for keeping in a shared tank. In larger-sized workers, the thorax is reddish in colour.
