Azteca instabilis

Azteca colonies typically produce a steady stream of winged queens throughout the season, essentially saturating the environment with propagules to colonize any unclaimed territory in the forest canopy. This queen came to a light trap in Armenia, Cayo District, Belize.

Thanks to Jack Longino for the species ID.
