Camponotus sericeiventris (golden carpenter ant)

This is the largest and most conspicuous Camponotus species in Costa Rica. It inhabits dry forest or wet forest habitats, but seems to be more abundant in the more seasonal areas on the Pacific side. The workers are diurnal and are generalist scavengers. They often visit extrafloral nectaries.
