Identification
This specimen was large - like 2 inches or so. It was the largest insect that came to my blacklight station last night. I am questioning the "ant" identification knowing full well I am likely wrong.

 
Compare your specimen to the one below


Males can be well over an inch long.

 
Neivamyrmex swainsonii
Thanks again. I think you are correct. I think it is probably Neivamyrmex swainsonii The other images in this species are very close to what I saw.

I am sure it was larger than 1 1/2 inches. It was big.

Thank you.

Please click on "edit"...
...and add the sighting date to the Date field.

Thanks!
