Flight Activities of Two Species of Ants of the Genus Formica
The American Midland Naturalist
This paper is a description of flight activities of Formica obscuripes Forel and Formica ulkei Emery which occurred on the Edwin S. George Reserve, Livingston County, Michigan. Although each species has been studied rather extensively, there have been no previously published records of nuptial flights. On the contrary, each has been suspected of having no true flights, or of having flights which are very limited in extent (Weber, 1935 and Holmquist, 1928)
