Wrinkly staph

A specimen of Ecitoxenidia alabamae Seevers 1959, collected in Branford, Florida in 1939; 20 years prior to its description. Very few specimens have been collected of this species. Most known specimens are probably from lights. A good series will probably require directly sample from Neivamyrmex colonies.

I have to emphasize, the crenulation on this species is absolutely magnificent.
