More information

Camponotus fedtschenkoi is immediately distinguished by its very particular yellow color. This species of Camponotus is found in the desert steppe in Central Asia. The queen has a black head and a black thorax with a bright yellow gaster. Workers, on the other hand, are mostly yellow with the exception of majors, which may have a black head. They are more sensitive than other Camponotus species and are therefore recommended for antkeepers with some experience.

 

This species is often confused with Camponotus turkestanus. However, the latter has some differences, of which the completely yellow queen (unlike the black-yellow queen of C. fedtschenkoi) is the most striking.
