Proceratium google (W3)

Die zoologische Bezeichnung "Proceratium" enthält lat. "procerus" = dt. "lang", "schlank", "dünn". Die auf Madagaskar gefundene Ameisenart hat eine schmale, längliche Form. Vielleicht bezieht sich die Charakterisierung aber auch auf die langen schmalen "Fühler", auch "Antennen" genannt.

Die zoologische Bezeichnung "google" bezieht sich auf die von dem Zoologen Brian L. Fisher (Associate Curator of Entomology at the California Academy of Sciences) bei seinen Nachforschungen benutzte Suchsoftware, insbesondere "Google Earth".

Eine hohe, schlanke Gestalt wurde anscheinend schon früh mit Überlegenheit assoziiert. So bedeutet etwa lat. "procer" = dt. "einer der Vornehmen", "die Vornehmsten", "Aristokratie". Und span. "prócer" = dt. "hoch", "von hohem Wuchs", "hochragend" bedeutet auch dt. "hoch gestellt", "erhaben" und als Subjekt "hoch gestellte Persönlichkeit", "Magnat", "Führer", "Vorkämpfer", "Nationalheld".

"Proceratium google" Fisher, 2005 (ant from Madagascar) Named after the internet search engine company in hopes that it will cooperate on a database of all animal life. "Like Google, the ant is really good at finding obscure prey."

Identification

The ants are relatively small to medium in size, with colonies generally containing less than 100 individuals. They are similar to Ponerinae, except the promesonotal suture is fused and the frontal lobes are elevated (rather than transverse) and frequently reduced. In addition, the antennal sockets are exposed in a full-face (frontal) view of the head, and in most species, abdominal tergite 4 is much enlarged and vaulted, with abdominal sternite 4 being correspondingly reduced in size.

"Proceratium google", also known as the "Google ant", was discovered in Madagascar by Brian L. Fisher, Associate Curator of Entomology at the California Academy of Sciences. The ant has an oddly shaped abdomen, adapted for hunting its exclusive meal of spider eggs.

Fisher named the ant after the search engine company "Google inc.", as a tribute to the usefulness of Google Earth in his research. He wrote:

Named in recognition of the support from the Google company. I hope that Google will continue applying its talent to serve data relevant to the biodiversity community, conservation planners, and the general public. By creating a "Zoogle", Google could help achieve free and democratic access to taxonomic and biodiversity data on species. "P. google" is also suspected to be a specialist egg predator of spiders, which is also why this ant is aptly named after Google — for the ability to hunt down obscure prey. The specific name is an arbitrary combination, to be treated as a noun in apposition.
