ant - Temnothorax ambiguus

ant - Temnothorax ambiguus
Cross Plains, Dane County, Wisconsin, USA
July 1, 2011
Brachymyrmex depilis? These are very tiny yellow ants. This one is picking up a piece of pollen. Thought it would be nice to have a side view of them.

ant - Temnothorax ambiguus ant - Temnothorax ambiguus

Moved
Actually, in a whole different subfamily. See those two segments of the waist, and the short spines on the propodeum?

Brachymrmex is paler, has a one-segmented waist and no spines of any sort (and uniqely in NA ants, nine-segmented antennae, compared to this Temno's 11.)
