Hard ants to keep?

I am a relatively new antkeeper that is interested in keeping somewhat more difficult ants to keep, like Ponera pennsylvanica. By difficult, I mean harder to found/feed, not difficult to keep contained. I'm located in the Midwest area of the United States, Indiana o be exact. What might be some ants I could keep that are like this? Thanks.

Most social parasites. ;)
