Re: A rant about the lack of info on ants here in Ireland....

Have you looked at Antmaps yet? Ireland doesn't have the greatest ant diversity, but there are still plenty of interesting species to keep over there, particularly from Formica and Lasius.

Re: New Mexico IDs

Solenopsis sp. (most likely S. xyloni, but we would need a very close photo of the mouth-area to be sure)

Forelius sp.

Re: Could some one identify these ants

Better lighting would help us identify these Camponotus queens.

Re: My ants arnt moving

To conserve energy, ants don't move if they don't have to. When the colony gets bigger, there will be more ants with more to do.

Re: Formica lugubris

Having a solid identification may be important, but all rufa, sanguinea, microgyna, and exsectioides-group Formica are social parasites that require a small number of Formica worker pupae to start a colony.

Re: Camponotus Sp.? Help Identify Please

They make quite the impression when you see them for the first time. Camponotus caryae is another possibility, but that species will have standing hairs on its gena (cheeks).
