Abstract: The behavior of the queen and workers in the amblyoponine ant Prionopelta kraepelini was observed and compared with that of the queen and workers of FI amabilis. The queen fed mainly on larval hemolymph by pinching the larval body. Workers often laid trophic eggs, most of which were given to larvae. The foraging and recruitment behavior of workers were similar to P. amabilis.
