Neivamyrmex sp.
The ant in the lower left corner with straight antennae and a lighter brown body is not an ant at all! It’s a rove beetle. Some of these insects take on the colony odor and beg for food; others will prey upon the ants (Neivamyrmex sp.) themselves. Photo © Mark W. Moffett/Minden Pictures
