It was in the same anthill with this individual

Thanks for pics of the other individual
Pogonomyrmex makes much more sense. I guess my coffee hadn't kicked in yet while looking at the ants.

Moved from ID Request.

Please feel free to post ants directly to Formicidae.

Any others?
Are there any other types you would rather I post right to their pages? I usually just go to ID Request to get more visibility but I know some would require experts anyways

It's your call.
I always advise contributors to post to their deepest level of certainty--with an emphasis on certainty. Most editors/experts have learned to use the Recent tab or the Recent Images link to see images regardless of where they've been placed. There are a couple of exceptions (for instance, mayflies should always be posted to Ephemeroptera, and not deeper) but in general it's a good rule to follow. Of course, ID Request is always safe if you prefer posting there.

Ok will do, thanks
