Hi Kim, I haven't been able to relocate this one to put a rule down for scale. I suspect it to be similar to myrmecia pilosula, My references for ID:

Hi Kim - Whoops typo on the scientific name and I'm not sure how "common" is the common name. I have managed to relocate them and will post another sighting to show the length from tip of mandible to tip of abdomen to be about 13mm. Also the "toothless" mandible.

If anyone wants some 10cm waterproof measuring strips just let me know and I will post them out. It's handy to have one in your pocket
