Particularities: Ants from this species display a reddish-brown shimmery hair-growth on their backside. They are active at dusk and night-time and operate very slowly during daytime. Under stress, they produce a sticky, foam-like defence secretion which hampers their enemies. Their ability to climb up glass and smooth surfaces is limited.
