“Pirate Ant” (Cardiocondyla pirata)
…a species of Myrmicine ant that was discovered in the province of Laguna in the Philippines. C. pirata gets its common name from the black steak that occurs across the eyes of females, this pattern occurs in no other ant and is thought to be reminiscent of a pirate’s eye-patch. C. pirata was discovered fairly recently (~2013) and as such very little is known about its biology. It likely behaves fairly similarly to other members of the genus Cardiocondyla.
