Green Tree Ant.

Green Ant

Genus Oecopylla
(Subfamily Formicinae)
The single Australian species of Oecophylla, O. smaragdina always nests in trees or shrubs. Its nests are constructed by attaching leaves together with silk produced by their larvae. Individual colonies can become very large with many separate nests spread over several trees. They are very aggressive and will vigorously attack intruders. Foraging takes place both on vegetation and on the ground, and they are predacious.*
