Verbatim Date Collected18 Jul 1986
Field NotesNOTEBY J.Longino: Primary forest. Collecting in 4-day old treefall, Stryphnodendron and enormous Dipteryx. CCL 300. Extensive multiple-nest colony of Odontomachus panamensis (#1393) spread throughout treefall; nesting in nearly every epiphyte clump, mainly moss and aroid clumps. Broadly overlapping with colony of Crematogaster parabiotica-group (#1394). Apparently a parabiotic association, but Odontomachus was alone in places, and Crematogaster were alone in places. The Crematogaster were streaming over the fallen trees, very abundant; aggregations of workers and occasional queens clustered under leaves, in small crevices, suggesting destruction and/or abandonment of original nest sites.
