Full post here (not the same specimen, but the same parameters and location; I believe they are both the same species):
''Dinoponera quadriceps'' is a queenless species of ants in the subfamily Ponerinae. The species, known from Brazil, is similar to ''Dinoponera mutica'' and uses venom for subduing large live prey and defense. Its venom could be of use to the pharmaceutical industry.
