Tandem run: In the case of a nest moving or a large beutier, a leader will guide another nest in the tandem run! Alone, or hunting in small groups, begetters are usually first stabbed and then transported to the nest. This diacamma species also has a gamergate. The queen can not be distinguished from the naked eye by a worker. These colonies, however, were specifically examined and have guaranteed a queen (Gamergate)
