This ant is from Madagascar, and is named Eutetramorium mocquerysi. The species is notable for having wingless queens that are indistinguishable from workers.

This image is composed of 400 pictures, and it's magnified 400x using a scanning electron microscope. The ant was given to us to image by Brian Fisher (www.calacademy.org/science/heroes/bfisher Will open in a new tab or window/) an entomologist at the California Academy of Sciences.

This Gigapan is part of the NanoGigaPan project. Which is working to take high resolution images of very small things.
