These do nest in the well drained soil of scrub habitats, and this is the only native Monomorium found around Naples. Note that the somehwat lighter coloring of the mesosoma is not a species characteristic, just individual.

 
Thanks for
both the species confirmation and the info about the mesosoma color being somewhat unique to this individual.
