Atta y Acromyrmex

Leafcutter ants. Endemic to South and Central America. With my current fascination with endemism sounds about right that they were the ones to first catch my attention on my most recent jungle walk. Living in Western Australia for the past year I had forgotten about the lush rainforest that holds so many species in just one spot. How diferent our world is depending on where we are. Biogeography is indeed fascinating.
