Finally got it! Evidence of Pella planifer behaving in its natural environment.
We know from work conducted in the Palearctic that species of Pella hang around the nest vicinities of their host ants, preying upon weakened workers and scavenging on whatever opportunities that may arise. But these observations were geographically limited and the few Pella species of North America were a behavioral enigmas.
Based on my own previous observations, it had been becoming clear that North American Pella exhibit similar behaviors and ecologies as their Old World cousins. That’s all dandy but there is nothing that can top visual evidence to support an organism’s behavior in its native environment – today, I’ve finally accomplished this.
