I rewrote the United States Southwest key from the W. P. Mackay Revision of the New World Ants of the genus Camponotus for all the Southern California and Southwest people here. I find this is much easier to follow than the document. The file can be downloaded from this thread.

Ah... didn't realize that. I know it's also missing the other species in the Festinatus complex.
