Particularities: Striking species from Indonesia, black with a glossy gaster and a matte head and thorax. This species does not form large colonies the way Polyrhachis dives for instance does. Polyrhachis use their larvae to weave their nests; they don’t however belong to true weaver-ants, like Oecophylla for instance. These animals are escape specialists, so careful to use an effective anti-escape system. They are rather passive and tranquil, which makes them well-suited for keeping in a shared tank.
