Carebara

Carebara are mostly small ants (5 millimeters and smaller), some with very large gyne. While previously this genus consist of mostly ants with monomorphic workers, the merging (or rather absorbing into) of this genus with Oligomyrmex and Pheidologeton has render this to be no longer true.

I have maintained Carebara as those species that are monomorphic, Oligomyrmex as those that are dimorphic and Pheidologeton as those that exhibit a wide range of polymorphism.
