At this stage I don't have an insect identification guide and in any case it seems Australia is home to 1275 described species and subspecies of ants - so they would probably require a whole book to themselves!
The CSIRO has a website dedicated to ant information:-
As detailed as the CSIRO "Ant Down Under" site is, I have yet to identify the ant in the pic. Have a look at the "Identification" area and see what I mean!
The other site I refer to from time to time is OzAnimals.com but they have considerably less detail regarding ants, so I can't see my fellow there either!
