Description

These ants are abundant and make nest burrows in the alkali mud of hypersaline Mono Lake - a pretty extreme environment.

Description

These were actively foraging along the shoreline of hypersaline Paoha Island of Mono Lake, apparently foraging on algae similarly to and along side Ephydra alkali flies and other sensu lato alkali-dwelling flies. So they are living here - I though I had read they were reported to use meadows.
Crappy iphone pictures only. Last one is habitat shot.

Huge eyes, very active on window so no good photos but looks unfamiliar to me. Location is nearly 7000’ so it’s still early spring here. Guess on genus
