Philippine Ant Identfication

I live in Rizal, Philippines. What do you call those black ants that live underground? They found foraging on the ground. They're like 1 cm in length. They're always found singly when foraging and enter in random holes back to their colony.

The Philippines have 562 ant species recorded there. There are going to be several dozen ant species that match the description. I would recommend pictures if you have any.
