Another Ant/Wasp Question - Brachymyrmex depilis

Another Ant/Wasp Question - Brachymyrmex depilis
Montrose, Laurens County, Georgia, USA
September 23, 2011
Size: less than 4 mm
Found on back porch wall in the late evening. This one seems related to this: except for the lighter coloring and the black at the base of the wings. These photos were taken at virtually the same time as that set. Neither animal looks absolutely like an ant nor a wasp to my eyes....

Tiny with 10-segmented antennae. Like the worker's 9, this is a reduced number of antennomeres, compared to all the 13 (worker's 12) of related genera.
