Author's notes

Suggest - Camponotus nigriceps - Sugar Ant These ants love to build large nests under my paving. (loose layed over sand and gravel) They are otherwise inoffensive, being mostly nocturnal and disinclined to bite

The colour, particularly the yellow at the base of the gaster, matches C. consobrinus rather than C. nigriceps.
