Lasius murphyi

Lasius murphyi
Rancocas Woods, Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
May 4, 2008
My nephew likes ants and wanted help with some IDs. I will be posting as I have no clue. I have a ton of unidentified ant images of my own! These were found under a rock in his yard. He told me he thought these were Lemon Ants.

Images of this individual: tag all

Moved from Ants.

I think he was right
These are indeed Lemon Ants (Acanthomyops sp.). Yellow Lasius sp. have larger compound eyes.

Good idea!
Looking forward to your ant images. I don't know why they are so poorly represented in the guide. Let us hope that an expert gives us a hand with them.
