Monomorium
Beautiful shot of the anteromedian portion of the clypeus elevated and forming those two submedian teeth! This is definitely Monomorium ergatogyna. It used to be a subspecies of Monomorium minutum, but has since been raised to its own species. Another ant species where records have shown it to inhabit San Clemente Island.
