Post here if you are going to a country or area where leaf cutters are found, if you are visiting a zoo or museum, or going anywhere that has these ants in the wild or in captivity.

French Guiana, April 2019

Fantastic scouting trip to French Guiana, just before the law was changed and when it was okay to bring insects out of there. Brought back some Atta cephalotes, Atta sexdens and Acromyrmex octospinosus.

Atta sexdens incipient colonies...

Acromyrmex octospinosus, same location as above...

I also collected a few Acromyrmex landolti, a very difficult species to excavate
