I am a "weekend" myrmecologist (= biologist focusing on ants).
I am conducting taxonomic studies of Asian species of the ant genus Pheidole > (Insecta: Hymenoptera: Formicidae) and biodiversity studies of Vietnamese ants, and I am also working on laying a solid basis
for myrmecology (biology of ants) in Asia. Furthermore, as a core technique for my research topics, I am now developing my skill in producing multifocused images of small insects. Concerning my activities as a weekend myrmecologist, please visit ＜http://www.antist2007.com/＞

After I arrived at Noi Bai nternational Airport on a cloudy day in November 1999, nine years slipped by. I, as a myrmecologist, have expended
enormous efforts and spiritual force to conduct my research activities in Vietnam. My specimen boxes contain not only numerous specimens but
also precious memories of my life in Vietnam. I wish to thank my friend
Dr. Bui Tuan Viet who always accept a brash young Japanese. I am also
thankful to foresters at the remote field stations and people in local villages. They always welcome me and provide facilities for my successful
and happy days. They are indispensable contributors to my project. On
15th October 2008, I would dedicate this publication to Vietnam and
people living there, with all my heart.

major worker, queen,"dwarf queen", and male of A. glabfemoralis
