Moved from Ants.

Myrmicinae: Aphaenogaster
This is one of the several members of the taxonomically difficult Aphaenogaster rudis group. Workers are tricky and males are close to impossible to name, so I'll just say possibly A. fulva because of its uniform dark color (but I wouldn't bet my life on it).

Thanks, James.
First one from NY :~)
