Particularities: The Pheidole species has two worker ant castes: normal minor-worker ants and some eye-catching soldier ants with large heads. This species belongs to the Ceratopheidole sub-genus and there is a particularly marked size-difference between the small worker ants and larger soldier ants. Always be sure to use an effective anti-escape system. These are really quite aggressive and have a very marked and impressive sense of recruitment. One of the largest Pheidole species in Asia. Major ants can reach sizes of up to 8-9 mm.
