Camponatus spp.? - Camponotus subbarbatus

Camponatus spp.? - Camponotus subbarbatus
Columbia, Boone County, Missouri, USA
April 1, 2010
Size: ~6.5 mm
Found crawling along a log. Camponatus spp? Thanks!

Moved from Ants.

Thanks a lot for the help, guys!

This is a small carpenter ant (genus Camponotus, subgenus Myrmentoma). I suspect this could be C. discolor.

Formicinae: Camponotus
Color is not right for C. discolor (all-black gaster, deep red head and mesosoma). This appears to be a species much more common in Missouri, C. subbarbatus.

Moved from ID Request.
