    Tagged With mymicinae monomorium?
    Kate Sandiford says

    The two fully constricted waist segments put this ant in the subfamily Myrmicinae. It looks a bit like Monomorium rubriceps but difficult to confirm from this angle. Martin Lagerway has also sighted this species on Bowerbird.

    Feedback on the ID would be great as if it is Pediana, it is the first record of the genus in Victoria.
