I couldn't either, and I have a pretty low threshold for frustration. But it's peaked my curiosity enough to keep looking.
What I find interesting is his mimic and this one have the same genus. That makes me think they're either both mimic's or ants. I couldn't find a good reference guide on this genus. You may want to keep looking.
Yes, I looked there too. ( I remembered Matt's being similar; but the pattern of dots was different and and it lacked the yellow tips.)
You're welcome! While looking for this ant, I found Matthew's wasp that somewhat mimic's your ant http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/618...
Thanks, Cindy; I couldn't find the one with the bright yellow antennae.
I agree with Cindy. Lovely pattern it has.
Wonderful ant. I like the polka dots.
