Moved
Moved from Pseudomyrmex.

 
Any reason
Any reason this was moved to P. seminole instead of P. pallidus? These sp are hard to tell apart in photos.

 
I
believe it is the faint dark spots on first tergite, but don’t recall why I moved them.
I don’t know much about ants, so there was likely a good reason for the move, otherwise would have left at genus.

Pseudomyrmex pallidus
This species is widely distributed -- across the southern tier of the USA, all the way to Argentina. But beware, there are also several others that look much like it in tropical areas.
