So cool. Wouldn't it be the best experience finding a new species?

Backyards can produce some interesting finds, for sure! A healthy, primarily native yard does wonders for finding ants. I've found Proceratium creek, one of the rarer ants in NA in my own backyard.

I just find it interesting that a species, not to mention a Strumigenys, is actually being aided by humans who planted trees to make it moister in the naturally desert Utah valley, creating microclimates. Almost like how tetramorium does great in urban areas.

Strumigenys are actually a pretty widespread tramp genus. Species like membranifera and emmae have a worldwide equatorial range.
