Observations on the foraging behaviour of Myrmicaria brunnea subcarinata (Smith) (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in a tropical rainforest in Sarawak (Malaysia)

Jan Wriedt, Dirk Mezger, Lucy Chong & Martin Pfeiffer
As a contribution to the knowledge of the natural history of Myrmicaria brunnea subcarinata (Smith, 1857), we studied the territory, circadian activity patterns, diet composition, trophobiotic interactions and fighting success of a colony of this species in an alluvial forest in Gunung Mulu National Park (Borneo, Malaysia). The territory size of the focal colony, which comprised 6,000 to 8,000 individuals living within a single nest, was approximately 270 m2. Many permanent foraging trails were subterranean...
