Camponotus abditus

Camponotus abditus is a species of carpenter ant endemic to Guatemala. It was described by Forel in 1899.[1]

Based on specimen collections, Camponotus abditus ants are found in montane rainforest edge habitats, at elevations of 1,140 metres (3,740 ft).[2] This species is rather small. Workers are normally 3.5-4mm in length, soldiers at 5-6mm, males at 4-4.5mm, and the queens are 7.5mm, making them the largest of the colony.[3]
