Syscia augustae

Among the most rarely encountered North American ants is the blind, subterranean Syscia augustae, found from central Texas west to Arizona. The apparent rarity of this species may simply be an artifact of its underground habitat. Here, a worker carries a larva in the typical fashion of Dorylinae, slung under the body. Austin, Texas, USA.
