Colony composition, arthropod egg predation, and antennal structure of the ant Discothyrea sauteri (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)

Keiichi Masuko
In an evergreen, broadleaf forest in central Japan, we collected 21 colonies of the cryptic ant, Discothyrea sauteri, which nests in small cavities in the soil (ca. 100 mm depth), rotting logs, and dead branches lying on the forest floor.
