Small swarm was gathered at larger dead insect in very sandy soil. Thanks as always.

I frassed the ventral view because such an aspect is virtually never helpful for ID'ing ants. From Maryland, there is only one species this could be, as identified here.

Thank you, sir.
Copy that on the ventral view. Added a new county record for our Maryland Biodiversity Project effort. Much appreciated as always.
