I was out anting today in Muddy Creek Wetlands Preserve in lower Mobile County, Alabama.
I was looking through a downed, fairly rotten pine tree and discovered this ant species sneaking through the old termite chambers.
It is a really exciting find as I haven't found these since I started anting a few years ago. Sorry for the not so detailed pic. I will try for a better one later.
Anyone care to guess on this species with provided pic?
5mm long, grooves on alitrunk and head.
