Moved
Moved from Ants.

Not Solenopsis
Could even be a formicine, but pictures of dry specimens with better lighting in standard antweb poses would really help.

 
Agh you're right
I saw a really similar male Solenopsis in a collection a while ago and thought of it immediately, missed a lot of signs on the way. Brightened these images in photoshop a bit and I'm thinking Hypoponera now.

I am pretty sure
I'm pretty sure this is a Solenopsis male (one of the tiny yellow species).
