Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Umm, we will need MUCH better pictures (closeups of the antenall scapes and mandibles) in order to differentiate it from L. alienus and L. pallitarsis. Given the time of year, L. alienus is a good bet but you never know.
