Eciton burchellii (army ant)

Wikipedia Abstract

Eciton burchellii is the predominant species of the genus Eciton and a type of New World army ant. Distinct in its expansive, highly organized swarm raids, it is often considered the archetypal species of "Eciton army ant" — so much that the term has become its common name — and remains one of the most heavily investigated of all ant species.
