Is it right to say that the most easy way to distinguish, just by looking at their protonum, is that the male's double yellow spots is larger and brighter than compared to the female?

yeah they are a genderly dimorphic species and the males headmarking can range from a yellow to a bright orange..im not sure whether its another subspecies but they're pretty cool

ive found they eat a lot of oak leaves but other standard fare they aren't too excited about..don't know whether my findings or others have experienced this but is good for me as there are a lot of oak trees about

I have also heard they eat rotting wood buried in the substrate. I think oak leaves are a good substitution and use them as a staple in all of my colonies.
