Queen Ant ID request  - Brachymyrmex - female

Queen Ant ID request - Brachymyrmex - Female
Lake Worth, Palm Beach County, Florida, USA
January 12, 2014
Size: 3mm
Found this queen under a brick. Looks slightly like Brachymyrmex sp. but not correct colors or shape of Brachymyrmex sp. Sharp, sickle shaped mandibles.

Moved
Moved from Ants.

I agree with [i]Brachymyrmex[
I agree with Brachymyrmex, but being unable to see the pilosity pattern, I hesitate to name a species.

 
Another picture?
Dr. Trager, would it be worth getting a headshot of the queen to try and make the pilosity pattern?

Brachymyrmex depilis
A friend helped me identify it as Brachymyrmex depilis :)

Cropped and moved for expert attention.
