The present dataset pertains the article "Weaving through a cryptic species: Comparing the Neotropical ants Camponotus senex and Camponotus textor (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)" published in Micron (2017) http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.micron.2017.03.016. Included in this dataset any reader can find: (i) Images of light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy obtained from some specimens collected in the field and analysed for the present study, including adults and larvae, either of whole body or specific dissected body parts; (ii) Original obtained chromatogram files prior to ion m/z masking (masking strong background and column bleed peaks) used for general CHC analysis; (iii) Preliminary versions of the phylogenetic tree for COI as presented on Fig. 9 with further details on the steps and criteria used in optimizing the results presented with conclusions, including raw files; (iv) Minor pertaining details (submission cover letter, supporting technical files and explanations)
