oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Queenright and queenless breeding systems within the genus Pachycondyla (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
The reproductive biologies of two species of Pachycondyla are contrasted. A nest of P. wroughtoni (Ford) that was excavated contained a mated dealate queen, but nests of P. krugeri Ford lacked any female sexuals. This queenless breeding system was investigated.
