Nothomyrmecia macrops (Australian Ant)

Wikipedia Abstract

Nothomyrmecia macrops, sometimes called the dinosaur ant, is the only extant species of its genus. Its morphological similarity with the Baltic Eocene fossil ant genus Prionomyrmex has resulted in the species often being considered a living fossil and stimulated several studies on its morphology, behavior, ecology, and chromosomes.
