Sequence data:


Arthropoda, Insect, Hymenoptera, Formicidae, Hypoponera (55.35% accuracy)

Genus of Ants- Hypoponera

-Some other results came back as to the Taxa of this insect, but the only one that had a higher percentage on the Blast Database was a subfamily of Hemipterans called Deltocephalinae. Don't think this sequence is correct though because there are several repeats throughout the sequence as well as nucleotides that were not recognizable.
