Brief Summary

Camponotus sexguttatus is a midsized, polymorphic species with a shiny reddish brown head, a shiny dark brown gaster marked with yellowish white spots, and a distinctly impressed metanotal suture. The species is a Neotropical native and ranges from Argentina to Nicaragua and presumably parts of the Caribbean (Kempf, 1972). Although it is considered introduced in Florida and at least some Caribbean islands (Deyrup, 1998;2003), C. sexguttatus is not considered a pest (Deyrup et al., 2000).
