I don't think it's an ant, I think it's an form of ant-mimic Assassin Bug - I'm still searching for an ID, but I think the mouth part and antennae gives it away! Smile

Thanks, Karen, that's really interesting. I did have a doubt in my mind whether it really was an ant. As well as the mouth part, another unusual feature is the transparent part of the body joining the thorax and abdomen. It's not so clear on this photo, but it seems to contain a green liquid. Fascinating little beastie.
