Description

Many workers carrying Formica subsericea (workers & brood) across raised garden plot. Head was partially dorsally concave, so thought it might've been exsecta group, but no large mound within 100ft and hairs and coloration didn't match. Clypeus was notched, but only a little bit (sanguinea group). The hairs were short, but not present on the propodeum; the petiole was blunt in profile; so F. subintegra.

Description

Found in a rotting log on an entomology student field trip. Specimen maintained at Providence College. Could be S. metazytes instead of S. pulchella, but I believe the flagellate hairs on the dorsum and curvature of the hairs on the clypeal margins match the expectations for S. pulchella (curving toward the mandibles laterally but away from the mandibles on the anterior margin).
