This arboreal ant, Tetraponera rufonigra is one of the most commonly occurring Pseudomyrmicines in South India. They are solitary foragers and often nest in dead wood and rotting logs. They have an extremely sharp sting and are not shy to use it at all. They can be easily identified by their jerky walking movements. They are commonly found around coconut and mango trees.
