Moved from Pseudomyrmex.

As Jody suggests...
This is likely Ps. apache.

Moved from ID Request.

probably not an ant...
looks like one of those wierd wasp-like hymenops with wingless females.

how are you ruling out apache?

Looks like Pseudomyrmex to me, too.

Meet you there!

Fabulous shot, Margarethe! I might have to take up "beating" myself! What a cool ant.
