Description

18 July 2015: Walked near the marsh observation station at the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge in Fort Worth, Texas and came upon a small colony of Ant Lion (Family Myrmeleontidae) funnel pits next to a Prickly Pear cactus on a sandy stretch of the trail leading to the marsh observation station located next to the parking lot. The colony as a whole was shaded by large mesquite trees. We remember Ant Lions from way back when we were children (in South Texas) and how it was that we would play with them finding them strange and interesting at the same time. How it was that they walked backwards and how it was that they would redig themselves and disappear once placed back in their funnel pits. Being children we sometimes would place a small captured ant in their funnel pit and watch them come out and take it down under much like many years later we recall seeing the 1984 film "Dune," where these huge creatures would come up from under the sand of that imaginary planet and take anything and everything down under. Such terrifying creatures might as well have been Ant Lions. As children we'd already observed that Ant Lions loved ants and constituted one of the favorite prey they trapped in their funnel pits which were impossible to escape from once you'd fallen in - the ants that is. In the film "Dune" of course these once menacing creatures eventually help save the day. That's Hollywood. The City of Fort Worth, Texas administers the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge. It is without question a real gem of a place in the greater North Texas metropolitan area.

At a website called "The Antlion Pit" we discovered the following particulars about the distribution and species diversity of these interesting insects: "The approximately 2,000 species of antlions are distributed throughout the world, primarily in the warmer regions (Grzimek 1979, 227). In North America, the greatest number of genera and species are found in the southwestern states of the U.S. (Arnett 1985, 260). One of the most common North American species is Myrmeleon obsoletus. The main European species are Myrmeleon formicarius and Euroleon nostras (Grzimek 1979, 224)."

Because they are widespread and range across the globe the Ant Lion is certainly an authentic resident of Earth.
