My favourite Leuc, the common name used by the flower-pickers was simply ‘mix’, being the flowers that you mixed into the bunches of Protea compacta, Berzelia albiflora etc etc. Its favourite ant is Anoplolepis steingroeveri.

Growing in limestone soils on the hardeduine; the ants don’t seem to recognize any difference between alkaline and acid soils – Anoplolepis steingroeveri was all over the place, as usual. I am in doubt of my ID for this one.

A sprawling but not, in this case, radioactive pin [we hope]; Anoplolepis steingroeveri all over it for nectar [and later, seeds]. John Rourke recalls collecting seeds of this species and leaving them on the window-sill to dry; ants came and carried them off. John did not connect the seeds to the ants, and removed those that were left while making disparaging remarks about the pernicious world of insects. See www.ants.org.za for more info.

A beautiful and unusual red pin; Anoplolepis steingroeveri prominent on the ground. There were also some Myrmicaria nigra bumbling around, but I am certain that these are seed-predators so any role in myrmecochory is accidental, and hardly to be relied upon.

Arguably the most consistently beautiful inflorescences in this genus, the Kleinmond flowers were once exploited for the flower trade. The bush on which this flower was blooming is one of those used in Bond and Slingsby’s original myrmecochory experiments in 1981. It’s still there, and the ants are still Anoplolepis steingroeveri.
