Ant with scale insect

Description:

Beyond any doubt these are ants...but I have never seen any with such 'pointy' abdomens...almost heart-shaped.

Habitat:

On a mango tree in the grounds of the Hotel we stayed at near Hampi...ruins of an ancient city. State Karnataka, India.

Notes:

Just found out that the state of Karnataka in India is particularly rich in ants. Crematogaster?
