Résumé : Differently pigmented workers of Myrmica rubra societies were observed when stimulated by the ant Lasius flavus. They showed different reactions primarily according to their age. The oldest ants of pigmentary group 5 mostly attacked the enemy while younger ones of categories 4 and 3 spent more time in recruiting congeners. The youngest workers took no part in defending the colony against an intruder. © 1974.
