Male and Female Winged Harvester Ants (Messor andrei) Leave the Nest

Male and Female Winged Harvester Ants (Messor andrei) Leave the Nest

Winged ants (alates) emerge in July. The males have only one short-lived purpose, and do not need a large head. (One male is above.) All other ants in the colony are female. [p 10]

The male, on the left, has a smaller head.
