Author's notes

I've included a somewhat fuzzy photo as it is the best of a bad bunch showing the jaws.

These are great photos - and luckily we don't need to see the jaws very clearly in order to identify this genus! Trying to get a good image of the jaws (as well as side and top photos) is really important for the Bulldog ants, Myrmecia. Cheers, Jon
