Claremont, Los Angeles County, California, USA

These ants were on a fire road at the Claremont Colleges' Bernard Field Station in an area that consists primarily of non-native grasses. Any information about their identity will be greatly appreciated!

Several different individuals are shown in the photos, as it seems that photos of ants in the same colony are linked in BugGuide. Please let me know if I should unlink them.

Thanks!
Thanks for the ID! We've previously identified M. wheeleri, which is in the Endiodioctes group, at the field station. I've moved these images to Myrmecocystus, but please feel free to frass if they're not useful for the guide.
