Ant 11 - Odontomachus? - Odontomachus ruginodis - male

Ant 11 - Odontomachus? - Odontomachus ruginodis - Male
Rotonda West, Charlotte County, Florida, USA
June 5, 2011
Size: 5 mm
Collected at UV light.

Seems similar to the other Odontomachus male I posted, but with a darker coloration. Looks a lot like Odontomachus ruginodis on AntWeb.

This is a group in which males are easier than females or workers to identify. Color pattern alone clinches it in this case.
