Author's notes

This was the tiniest ant, just 2-3mm, and not posing for photos, but probably one of the clearest I have got of them so far...

Hi Christine, this is probably Ochetellus glaber, but can't be sure from the photo. It's a small blackish ant which commonly comes into houses and onto kitchen benches, as well as being pretty common in the bush. Cheers, Jon
