Ooceraea biroi (Clonal raider ant, clonal line C1) (Obir_v5.4)

About Ooceraea biroi

Ooceraea biroi, the clonal raider ant (Ooceraea biroi), is a queenless clonal ant in the genus Ooceraea. Native to the Asian mainland, this species has become invasive on tropical and subtropical islands throughout the world. Unlike most ants, which have reproductive queens and mostly nonreproductive workers, all individuals in a O. biroi colony reproduce clonally via thelytokous parthenogenesis. Like most dorylines, O. biroi are obligate myrmecophages and raid nests of other ant species to feed on the brood.
